    I have 4 fish in a grow-out aquarium, the fishes are a spotted pleco, a clown knife fish, an oscar and a peacock bass, the peacock is about 7 inches, the oscar is about6.5-7 inches, so I feed the fish a variety of foods, like shrimp, scallops, mussels, tilapia and pellets, the oscar will accept all the food, the clown knife accepts some of the meats, the bass, and the pleco won't accept any. also, the peacock and the oscar fight for territory underneath near the filter pump, they don't seem to deal serious damage and do it frequently thou just occasional, also they are shy at the moment, they just hang around the filter pump, they have been in the tank for about 2 weeks. should I separate them, I got another tank, also should I get more peacock bass or just stay with 1?

    Try live foods if you're too worried. No reason to get more than 1, they do fine alone.
