Default Are polyodons really that more aggressive?

I have a wonderful group of 30 poly chinga and here alot of people saying how aggressive that species is. Mine are aboit 2 inch and nothing more then the little circle chase. This is my first group of petros. I was going to put them in my 180g.

You're off to a better start than most.

Two things working in your favor

You have 30 of them
They will be going into a 180

Tank size is fine, an 8'er would be better IMO, but many people have success in 6' tanks, myself included.

Aggression will continue to build as they put on size and when the ladies are ready to breed. IME, aggression will continue to build as the fish grow. Just make sure you are prepared to handle the inevitable, ie a fish that's had it's *** kicked.

Make a isolation container out of a plastic showbox with a lid. Drill holes for flow and a larger hole to add food. Act quickly and decisively with an injured fish. Pm me if you want more info on this setup.

This is vital tool in any petro keepers toolbox. It allows the fish to rest and heal, while staying in sight of the others and still being a part of the group.

Yes as above. I have never seen such aggressiin as displayed by my male chinga and this was directed at anyfish it met. Pure evil.
