I've kept these in the past and really enjoyed them. In my experience, aggression varies greatly between individual fish. A group of females coexisted in a tank with livebearers, eating the fry but not attacking the adult fish. I kept a male in a two gallon planted jar, and moved all of them to a mini pond outside during the summer. Unfortunately, we had a scorching summer and the pond wasn't in enough shade. Lesson learned!
