I have 2 nice ones that are about 7-8". They are starting to nip at the fins of my bass that are over twice their size. Does there aggressiveness get worse as they grow or do they tend to mellow out? If I decide to sell the 2 lents, what's a fair asking price?

Lents are very mean. More than any other species I kept and I’ve kept quite a few.

My pair are in the 10-11 inch mark. I do not find them more aggressive than any of the other lugubris types. They are big pikes so they need their space though.

I find that my 10" Lent chases but does not harm my SDs....She also ignors my Plecos. She did hound and kill both my male Lent and a Dwarf yellow pike that hid in my rock structure. Are the Lents causing damage to fins or just chasing?
