Yes they can be very aggressive, they are known to suck slime coat off of fish and other tank mates when they get hungry. They are great with plants, but don't always play nice with others.

Yes, it's good to always research species before adding them to your community. Hope they play nice for the time being, you can tire them out a bit by using two nets to chase around and try to chase them in other net.

Are you joking? First off that's extremely cruel, and second in a lot of places it's illegal. If you need to get rid of him sell him or give him to a pet store. Or start a pond
