Try raising the water temperature a bit (to about 82 degrees); that will make them more agressive.
Other than that, you could place the tank in a high traffic area (living room): this makes them get used to human presence faster, and they'll get bolder quickly.

About the lighting: my reds aren't skittish at all, but when I turn on or off the canopy lights, they keep freaking out, and start hurling themselves into the tank glass, rocks etc. :veryangry: I guess they'll never snap out of that completely...

I think the obvious question is how long you have had them. The P's are gonna need soem time to get adjusted to their new environment, and you.....so with some patience they will be killers soon
