My orange zebra is a large pain in my backside. It refuses to leave the other fish alone and is much to aggressive. While there are indications of intelligence, it still can't be trained. Beautiful fish quite moody.

The undisputed 'King' of an all male, fish overstocked, 33 gallon long aquarium! My nearly 6 inch long Mbuna terrorizes a slightly smaller Socolofi, a Crabo half his size and a tiny little 2 inch long Melanichromis Auratus. He seems to merely enjoy chasing his hapless subjects though, as I haven't seen any real damage done yet. Additionally, this aquarium is heavily rocked with a lot of hiding places for harried cichilds! Overall a real pleasure to observe, but I wouldn't characterize the level of aggression in this tank as 'soothing' to watch......
