First murder case witnessed

I saw my angel fish today with two whisker on its mouth. I asked myself why this guy grew whisker? is it a different species? I got the answer just seconds later when it spit out the head of my cherry shrimp! Considering this guy also nibble on my star grass a lot, I think I gotta get it out and send it back to LFS (got it only a month ago). Strange thing is that the other two angel fish in the same tank really behave (one of them is 2 years old and is much larger).
Is the aggressiveness really just personality? or is it because of the gender? I know the mild bigger one is a female because she lay eggs, maybe this bad boy is a male? Anyone knows how to tell angel fish's gender?

I have raised many angels and still can't tell for sure untill they mate. I have had some really aggressive angels, but only one or two that were mellow. I think you may have the exeption to the rule. lol

Something so expensive and addictive HAS to be illegal. I'm just waiting for the police to break down my door and confinscate my fish food.
