Hi all, anyway to reduce the aggressiveness of PNT? My PNT has been biting its tankmates. Had to transfer it to another tank temporarily.

Well then if it's really well fed and still aggressive then it's just your PNT's personality. Something that is rather hard to change or impossible to change. Nevertheless shower it with TLC Cheers!

You can apply yellow powder and leave it out of water for around 15 minutes before releasing it back into the tank.

That's right. You can also use table salt or both at the same time.

What I'm using now is Bacidin lotion which I got from the vet.

Yeah a bigger tank which allows the fish to swim away from the pnt easily can also play a factor in reducing injuries and fatalities. Like my pnt now that cant seem to catch the feeder mollies and goldfish that i have bought and is now part of the tank community.
