Aggressive platy

My 4ft tank is now fully stocked but I have noticed that one of my high-fin Platy girls is a right b*tch! She harasses the other fish and often 'claims' a spot which she will defend aggressively until she forgets about it. She is worse at feed time where she guards the entire top level of the tank! She is a gorgeous fish, but I want my tank to be harmonious! She is also the biggest by far and I am worried she will do some damage to the smaller fish. Should I return her to the shop? Can you return fish?

Is she the only platy in the tank? and is she pregnent? what other fish are in the tank? and what sizes are they? If your LFS is frendly the they normaly will swap for a smaller fish its worth a go

Cheers

There are several different types of platies in the tank but she is by far the biggest. The other platies are normal platy size, she is a giant! There are babies in the tank and I know they are high-fins, but not sure if they are hers. She has no interest in them - well except as snacks.
