Kenny bin Laden

OK so many of you know my lone Bosemani Rainbow, Kenny, and his shenanigans in my tank. He has eaten about 150 worth of amanos and cherries, he killed 3 of my red torpedo barbs, head butt style, and I put him in time out <stationary in a lg net in my tank> for several hours and he was good for about 2 days. Well he quickly returned to his terrorist ways so I mail-ordered him some potential brides. I got 3 females and one more male to keep him in check. Well it seems he is even more aggressive. He runs them all in the orner like JAWS. Anyone have any words of enlightenment for me. He has gotten more chances than Fritz the Cat!

I'm glad I got rid of my kenny jr's before they killed all my shrimp. I got three mystery fry from DC that turned out to be rainbows. I had to get rid of them when they started eating my shrimp, at about an inch long. I can imagine the terror of a full grown kenny. Sorry I don't have any advice for you, good luck.

Quick & Easy solution. Wait for it! Wait for it....


Get rid of him!

There's no point in having a fish who kills all of your other fish---especially expensive ones. There are plenty of other fish who will display at least moderately better behavior than this one that you have. If I were you, I'd just give him to my LFS and write off my losses.

Yeah I hear you. I am one of those weirdos that stays up worrying about him...will he go to a good home, will someone kill him....I took him off someone hands and I feel a responsibility to make sure he is ok <even though he arrived half dead in a broken bag with an inch of water in it> I just thought someone would have an alternative...

I was just informed by my husband that Kenny is in quarantine right now for being very aggressive with one of the new females. Oh I forgot to mention he killed on of my female red rainbows too. I got him another male in case he goes "that way" ...not that there is anything wrong with that.....but my hubby said he was looking to kill her so he has him in the giant net in the tank and he said Kenny is head butting the net sides pi**ed as hell.

Kenny boy is giving a good species a bad name. All of those innocent vegetarian Amano's deserve some kind of justice. How about letting Kenny boy have a truth and reconciliation conference... in the freezer? Maybe the post office X-rays drove him mad? He is obviously a disturbed fish.

Can you crush up some Paxil or Lithium for little kenny?
maybe a fish whisperer?
