What are your techniques for dealing with aggressive fish? (Other than getting rid of it).
What success did or fails did you have?
Was it food?
more or less rock work?

It all really kinda depends IMO but I've had great success with catching the aggressive fish and keeping it in a see through container of some sort so it can safely watch and interact with the fish in the tank. It kinda gives it a minute to chill out and watch the other fish swim around in its territory. Try this for a few hours or so. It's kind of a forced sort of "acceptance" I've noticed.
I've heard a mirror on the side of the tank works, but I've never tried that. More places to hide is also great. Hope this helps :)

Lights out and cross tote fingers ...

Adding a small sailfin tang was the last addition .
the yellow , orange shoulder and mata all ganged up on the poor little guy .

2 days of beating and shredding his fins. And all is well .
Weird how they are a holes for a few days and all of a sudden they’re friends

I’ve got a sixline that is...well you know.
I haven't seen my royal gramma in a month, other than one eye peeping out of a cave.
