They don't chow down on fish as far as I can tell. I have 3 B. modestas, one as large as 4-5". They do a lot of chasing (sometimes leaving some scratches) but nothing too serious. I think they are great fish myself. My large one plays dead much more often than my clowns. He lays completely flat on his side all the time and my lecontei lays on top of him. They are pretty tough and hardy fish so by all means rescue him. Good luck!
