Mine spends his days hiding in his "cave" a hollowed out section on the backside of a piece of African bogwood. He doesn't harrass my 2 Ancistrus, but has very little tolerance for them when they wander too close to his territory. I've heard they can get pretty nasty when they get larger, but mine is still a bit small, and seems fairly tame, minus chasing the Ancistrus away from his cave
