Lecontei ousted!

I really hated doing it but, I took my lecontei to my lfs. He is in a tank with a red terror and holding his own. He beat up a 5" modesta, shredding his tail and keeping him in an upper corner of the tank. Moved him to the cichlid tank. He killed an albino zebra and a blotched nyasse. He also skinned a Distichodus sexfasciatus on both sides and grazed a Haplochromis sp. 44. Ok, moved him to the Green Terrors tank and he skinned a Syn. angelicus and off he went to the lfs. I really loved this guys looks but he was just hell on wheels. I paid for the 125 gallon and told the lfs owner if he hadn't sold I would try him again with all that room maybe he would behave. What do you guys think? I get the 125 the first week or two after Christmas. Waiting for my pumps and heaters to come in.
