Bristlenose catfish vs BGK fish

    Hi all... hoping for some insight into an issue I find in my freshwater aquarium. Its a 2ft planted tank (I know, pretty small) with 4 black neon tetras, 2 siamese flying fox, 2 clown loaches, 1 bristle nose and a BGK fish. All are quite small still; the biggest is the BGK (about 5 inches/13cm). The Clowns are babies still (5cm) and the bristle nose (nicknamed "Fatty") is about 8cm.
    The problem I see is Fatty (bristlenose) is constantly attacking the Black Ghost Knife fish and the BGK's fins are all starting to look quite feathered. I don't want to lose him and wondering if others have had this experience and what they did about it.
    It seems my only option is to remove Fatty from the equation! A bigger tank is certainly on the cards but would this help?
    Cheers, John
