the short answer to your research question would be an irritan.

edit: an irritan for life IMHO.

What do you have now? If you have other fish, you can make this into another species tank, quarentine tank, or even a hospital tank for those "just in case" days.

Ur askin about denticulatas, I owned one for a few months (RIP). One of the prettiest P's. Very active swims back and forth alot. Not aggressive in my experience but it will shred a feeder up like any P. Mine died of mouth rot, I read somewhere here that dentis are most vulnerable to this desease. They fin nip alot more than reds when young but if its gonna be alone like mine was I guess itll be ok. Hope I helped a bit.

I dont wanna steal the thread but I'm in the same situation as Compton. 33gal thats empty. Just was hoping if the owners purple spilos could post pics. Purple P's sound cool.
