re: Botia Modesta being aggresive

I was wondering if Botia Modestas are naturally aggresive. I have a 29 gallon tank (for now) and a 4" Botia Modesta with two 5" Dwarf Cichlids, a big Silver Dollar, a small Jack Demsey, a small Oscar, and a very small Firemouth and bottom feeders, etc... My Botia is very aggressive at times that's why I eventually resorted to buying aggressive fish that could defend themselves. He quarrels mostly with my large "Dwarf" Cichlids, especially during feeding time. BTW does anyone know just how large Botia Modestas can reach? I'd appreciate any feedback you could give me.
