    Ahh I see. The "Tip" kinda threw me off. I'm more used to seeing them as Bala Sharks (Balantiocheilus melanopterus)

    Most of the sites I've seen about it says that it's semi-agressive and not very territorial

    This is from http://www.liveaquaria.com/product/prod_Display.cfm?siteid=21&pCatId=1177

    Probably some kind of large cichlid like a red devil, jag, green terror, or a breeding pair of convicts with eggs.

    yeah i would change mine to t_chelle16's i forgot those...

    a spelling change on my last post: noted not knoted

    As bala sharks can grow to 10" I guess if you put them in a tank with not enough room a semi-aggressive fish would become aggressive towards one another over territory.

    My bet would be on the African Tiger Fish (although I don't support the fighting of fish in any way)

    I think the black shark would be the toughest

    not looking to fight the fish...i was just wondering if any one had accisently put 2 aggressive fish in the same tank. Why did no one mention piranhas?
  15. grnlemonade

    grnlemonade New Member

    i would probably say the flowerhorn would win.

    If you're talking about this fish:
    It's also called a bala shark and most LFS's carry them. But you should be aware that they get about 14", are very active, and need to be in groups of at least 3 so they really aren't suited for anything smaller than a 120 gallon tank.

    There is also a silver tipped shark (aka columbian catfish) that looks like this:
    It also get's about 14" but as an adult it needs a very brackish environment bordering on saltwater.

    agressive freshwater?

    definitly a puffer. they're SO ornery, and alot of them are poisonous(tetradoxin)

    Im gonna say that a goldfish with a giant laser strapped to his head would be the hardiest.

    ^ LOL alright now Dr. Evil...speaking in terms of one who had kept pit bulls for years, I would have to say, the siamese fighting fish might would a rough customer, just through sheer determination to win.
