Problems with Pictus

I'm seemingly having some Pictus problems - they are assaulting my other fish. I'm assuming it's them because none of my other fish could be responsible. One of my Glass catfish had obviously been attacked and killed, though it was too big for the Pictus to eat. One of my Flying Foxes had marks on it oddly similiar to what I'd imagine a bite from a Pictus would look like - as if it tried to swallow it down but couldn't. Could it be one of my other fish, or do I have some problem pictus on my hands?

Gonna have to see what I can do with them then. I hardly see them, anyways. They're big, 4 inches or so, so I don't know what to do with them.

I'll have to see. I wouldn't give them to the closest shops to me, so I'll have to ask around this weekend.

Mine were fully grown - one was actually about as thick around as a pickle. The reason I couldn't see them was that they hid inside the rockwork and decorations on the dI'm side of my tank, where the floating plants were. They only really moved around when the light was off, and then they just pestered my other fish.

yes i've seen this happen a lot with my pictus. he attacks any fish that gets too close to a little ornament cave I bought. what I bet it is is that he's just getting territorial.
