Are Flying Foxes aggressive?

Flying Fox fish can be aggressive and territorial, but they do not eat other fish or large species of shrimp. They have been known to bully smaller, shy or vulnerable species, so exercise caution when introducing tankmates. Flying foxes are less likely to be aggressive when kept solitary. A group of flying foxes will exhibit territorial behavior.

Flying foxes are bottom-dwelling fish native to the fast-flowing foothill rivers and streams of the Thai-Malay Peninsula, Borneo, Java and Sumatra in Southeast Asia. An aquarium with plenty of broad-leaved plants (like Anubias), driftwood and rock for hiding places is recommended.
