Evil CPO

I've had CPOs on several different occasions and they've always been calm and serene. I bought two for my 10 gallon a few months ago and one of them has all of a sudden has gone Charles Manson crazy. It killed its neighbor CPO, five yellow Neos, two Amanos, and an Otocinclus. This has all happened in the last week. The little ******* has been banished to its own tank.

Its hard to believe that one cpo would do all this damage in such a short period, have you actually seen him hunt and kill his pray or could there be something else going on

I only saw saw him grab two of the Neos. He caught them and flipped them onto their back. I'm guessing he took out the others too.

Yep I had a CPO that killed her brother too. I witnessed one of the attacks the morning of the day she killed him, and it was brutal, I didnt know they could move so quickly. I unfortunately had to rush to work, so I didnt have time to set up a new tank and separate the two CPOs. By the time I got home that night, she had finished him off. I thought that would be the end of her aggression, but I was wrong. She didnt kill any of my fish, but I saw her attempting to, and so she has been banished to solitary confinement as well.
