      is there any possibility to train your LMB not to be over aggressive. my lmb is just too aggressive especially towards his own kind. i dream of keeping peacocks, datnoids and lmbs together in one tank but seeing how aggressive one lmb can be i dont its possible. i hope you guys have an idea on this. thanks

      here's a picture of my tank bully BIG BILL. he started with 5 other bass... i had to release all the other five before they die after he beats them up everyday.

      Why is it so hard for people to understand NOT to release fish into the wild?

      That aggression is natural instinct and something that you cannot change

      its a wild caught fish in the first place. they only stayed in my tank for five days, after i saw the beat up i released them rather than having them killed... i dont see anything wrong with that...

      Releasing fish into the wild can bring about disease to the fish in the body of water. Aquarium fish often have diseases that may not be present in the water body.

      I have a LMB that I got legally as a 2" fingerling. He's been tank raised and never had to forage. He's still the most aggressive fish I've ever owned and has killed EVERY other fish I've put in the tank with him.

      So it sounds like LMB are extremely aggressive, but how do they compare to other crazy aggressive fish like snakeheads, p. Dovii, dorrados, ATF or other monsters?
