about two days ago I purchased a purple rose queen and the firs night, she attacked a couple of fish in the tank and today I took her out and put her in a bucket to for a couple hours with a heater and airator and now she’s back in the tank but seems to have calmed down significantly. My question is if I should take her back to the store or let her stay. I am leaning toward taking her back but there’s also this feeling inside of me that says let it play out maybe it was Just dominance/territory dispute. Let me know what u guys think and if you have any ideas on how to prevent future instances( I moved everything in the tank before acclimating her)

A flowehorn is not a community fish unless you keep it with similar aggressive species in a very big tank

What are the other fishes? Also not QTing is also dangerous

I agree that not quarantining the flower horn is dangerous. It might get your other fish sick. Usually, flowerhorns aren’t kept in a community tank because they are aggressive. Listing your other fish would be helpful

That’s a horrible horrible mix. Africans and Central Americans don’t even speak the same body language

Acara, a South American Cichlid, is snuck in there too.
Yeah both Acara and Gold Saum/GT. Both SA Cichlids. And that Acara doesn’t stand a chance.
