Re: Aggression issues continuing

Can you teach him new behaviors to do on cue? Done right, whenever he starts to act hormonal, you can cue a behavior that is incompatible with him trying to mate with you. This can discourage the behavior by "preventing" it from happening.

You can also try changing behavior by changing his cage, his cage location, the hours of day/night (cut further back on daylight? or try increasing daylight hours? - maybe try using better lighting? a dimly lit room may also help to increase hormones), give him opportunities to forage for food, etc.
