    I recently moved my tank and in doing so set off El Diablo!
    I made sure to transport the pair together.
    After the move for 2 day everything was calm.
    Then fiery .Seriously ,one minute calm the next El Diablo!
    First his mate.She didn't stand a chance since he is twice her size.
    Ate all her fins off.(I did try to catch her but short of another complete tear down couldn't catch her)
    So I thought WOW .OK .but now he is after everything in my tank .
    Clowns ,Gobie,Clam, anything that moves!! Anyone ever had this happen?What should I do?
    I really don't want or have time right now to do a complete tear down for a week or so .
    I afraid he'll kill everything by then.He is the biggest fish on the block..???

    Any ideas what might be making him so mad?
    I think I might go barbless hook fishin.!
    Anyone need a psycho male cardinal?

    I have nothing to add other then the barbless hook sounds like is needed. How very strange he'd go postal like that.

    Did you forget to dose caffeine?:)

    This is the first I've heard of it. Maybe you can trap him.

    I know some BAR members who actually caught their GSM clown using fishing line & a hook (even without bait). Did it work for your devil cardinal fish?

    I've used hook and line numerous times for several different fish :) worked every time.

    He seemed to be a little less jumpy today. Before the trap of course. :(
    The problem is he's good at hiding,not eating since he was a father.
    Circle hooks tomorrow! :)
    Maybe after basically changing 100% of his water during the move with natural sea water,
    He thought he was FREE! :D
