Its normal he is probably ready to breed and thats now his territory. Mbuna are very aggressive. You could try rearranging the tank decor, but eventually he will find new territory.

I know what you mean, when I started my mbuna tank I bought 20+ juvies and ended up with 9 adults. They also ate a rhino pleco along the way. But after a year I have to many to count from breeding them. Very cool fish if you can deal with all the casualties.
