    yes. i had dovii three or four times. biggest was 15". everytime i got rid of my dovii was because it was such a bad ass. hard to keep just 1 fish in a large tank. My last dovii made mince meat of my pair of flower horn, pair loseillei, pair of synspilla and a midas. All the pairs were breeding pairs. The pairs would team up on the dovii, it was 6 vs 1. Dovii had the middle, flower horn had the upper left, synspilla had the bottom left and the loseillei had the right. Dovii managed to kill the flower horns, devastate the synspilla and nearly kill the female loseillei. End up selling the synspilla and loseillei. The midas could wander peacefully with the other fish, but fought the dovii all the time. He was getting beat up at the end so I gave him away.

    Dovii was the smartest fish I know of, even smarter than some reef fish I have kept. I never seen a fish react so violently toward strangers.

    That is hardcore. I had no idea they were smart. I've always disliked their shape so never kept any.
