Alan,

Not bored, not hungry. My one Pygo got killed just on the next day they had eaten, bellies full of food. Normally I feed these 9 inchers once every 5-7 days.

This, is I believe, territorialism.
A Matter of Life and Death.

BTW Iron Maiden really Rocks.
is it likely to end up dead then ?

i dont think its MOST likey. but theres a chance hes challenging someone more dominant. it that case one might end up dead.
i woudl say hes as likely to be eaten now than ever. if you catch my drift.

ok if you wanna go all paranoid dumping salt m.fix or whatever in your tank. you should also consider the added risk to the fish from the rest of the shoal. so... you need to remove the fish and let it heal.

but then again the odds are slim so IMO let it be...

or put a divider in there if you havent got another tank, keep it seperated until it heals.

you dont need to treat that p with anything but time.
i would use salt, as it can not hurt and is very inexpensive
i would also look into maybe getting 2-3 more reds, they say 2 is a bad number.....
but i have never owned just 2 so i can't say for sure
