Damm Botia caudipunctata

Are they that terroritorial? Mine seems to be taking over the one side of the tank and constantly on patrol looking to chase any of the other botias in the tank. (1-lochata, 1-striata, 4-macracanthus, 2-sidtmunkts, 3-angelicius, 2-morleti) in 70 high. Will this $2.00 botia eventually kill off the rest of my botias? Eats well, but seems to have no allies in the tank. He also is one of the smaller botias in the tank. Very fast, skittish, and terroritorial!!! Any suggestions? Should I donate him or isolate him maybe? I think a plastic little box with a screen top would be perfect. All the other botias could swim around him and antagious him all day long. It would be a beautiful thing.
