 I've  got  2  blue  torqs  around  4"  in  my  new  discus  tank.    Now  have  2  marlboro  pigeon  bloods  around  2.5"  in  the  quarantine  tank.    After  3  weeks  of  quarantine  i've  dropped  them  into  that  tank  (40  gal  3  ft  long).    The  two  occupants  had  continuously  bullied  &  cornered  them  in  the  top.    Tomorrow  i've  planned  to  net  those  two  biggies  out,  change  the  aquascaping,  drop  in  the  small  ones  first  and  then  after  a  day  drop  in  the  biggies.
 Pls  give  your  suggestions  to  accomodate  them  and  before  that  your  views  on  if  i  could  accomodate  them  in  that  tank.
 Thanks  in  advance.

 You  are  doing  the  right  thing,  it  can  be  followed  for  any  cichlid  for  that  matter.  Only  other  thing  I  would  do  is  have  them  in  a  group  of  6-8  atleast.  This  way  the  aggression  on  one  particular  fish  is  reduced.

 Hi  Madhu:
 Its  normal  for  the  oldies  to  show  aggression  on  new  entrants,  just  like  in  college...
 In  order  to  reduce  it,  as  you've  rightly  thought,  move  the  big  fellas  out  at  least  for  a  weeks  time  so  that  they're  housed  in  a  new  environment...
 Let  the  smaller  ones  settle  in  their  new  home.
 And  then,  release  the  big  fellas  back...
 This  method  sometimes  give  you  the  expected  results...In  fish  psychology,  who's  in  first  is  the  owner...
 
 But,  if  your  big  fellas  have  lived  long  in  their  tank,  you  may  not  likely  to  see  any  difference  as  they'd  easily  recognize  their  old  paradise...
 Check  if  it  works,  else  we'll  think  of  alternatives...

 A  Group  of  8  to  12  would  be  the  best  thing  to  do..
