My tank consists of 2 wild reds(4" and 6"), 4 cariba (5-7") and one yellow natt (8"). I just added the yellow natt 2 or 3 weeks ago and before he was added the littlest red has always been my most aggressive pygo, always chasing others out of his territory.
Now the little red and yellow natts are running my tank together. They have joined forces, always hanging together, and chasing anyone out of there area which is the center of the tank.
It is great to watch them because of the size difference. Big yellow is massive compared to the little dude.
Just thought I would show that natts can be as aggressive and territorial as cariba, at least in my experience, and that these attributes are based on the individual fish and not just the type of fish.

You got a good point of proving it. Just like a cichlid is territorial and fights with its own kind. I've seen convicts attack piranhas if they get to close in its territory.

So what you say up above is right on.

I used to have a pair of parrot cichlids which worked as a team, generally against a 7" clown loach.
I also have a severum as the dominant fish in my piranha tank, its kinda funny.
Have you got any pics?

Ya it really just seem the fish's own personality and attitude, i have two larger reds around 7-8 inch that run the tank and there is a smaller red around 4 inches that also sometimes leads the pack, its funny seeing a 4 inch red take a nice size nip outta a much larger pirahna.

I have 5 differnt RBs.. 2 bigger than the pack and the other 3 being a little smaller in size and one of them has a deformed right eye. :D The 2 huge ones usually try and dominate one another. But when they get too much, Mr. Lazy Eye usually get in between them and breaks up the fight. He even chases and picks on them when he's bored. Imagine that.. a one lazy eyed bully.
:laugh:

Yellow natt? Are we talking about the forbidden "ternetzi"? My favorite pygo. They seem to take crap from nothing. Yes, get some picures posted!
