A single male flag fish I've found is unpredictable
when they are alone.  Some are no thouble with slow
tank mates, others get testy.  The only solution is to
exchange that single male for females.  Females don't
look as nice, but don't get testy.  Till you can get
females, pull him from the aquarium.
