Hi everyone. I been keeping 2 male Endler fish for a few weeks now, and one has gotten more aggressive poking/chasing. So today I purchased 3 more now I have 5 in total. However the one bugger keeps chasing and poking. I Have a well planted tank with decor. How do i stop this aggressiveness ? Here is a pic of my tank. Sorry the Endler's don't show LOL!

My guppies are always chasing each other. They tire eventually and the chase starts with another. Nothing ever harmful. Just the males behavior from what I’ve learned.

Well, he could be a dominant male. Usually, this will be over after a while.
But if he keeps acting lie that and others will be harmed I would get him out of there. But if I have to compare it to the behaviour overhere, it's a common thing.
