There is no telling for sure, there are too many factors when dealing with aggression.

There are a few different things you can do to try to prevent aggression, including:
1. Keep them all well fed at all times.
2. Don't keep the temperature too high, try to keep it on the low side (about 78 degress Farenheit).
3. Make sure they all have adequate space in the tank and are not overcrowded.

I hope everything works well for you.

True....I guess in a 225 they should have more than enough room.

the 6 reds keep running him into a driftwood cave. everytime he trys to go out they all swim towrds him and he backs away. I THOUGHT CARIBE WERE SUPPOSED TO BE EXTREMELY AGRESIVE. HE IS A p*ssy!
