I don't believe overstocking necessarily limits the aggression, its more that the aggression is spread out so not one individual fish gets picked on... you also have to look at environment. Sure in nature they are extremely aggressive(some not all) but in a tank it can be totally opposite. Most cichlids now are tank raised and I believe that makes a ton of difference. Sure if you had a tank full wild caught Africans they would be more aggressive compared to same species that has been tank raised for 10/20 generations. ..
