  1. Default Tiny, beat-up Cardinal... :(

    0 Not allowed!
    The tiniest of my cardinals always looks "beat-up" and tired as in his fins are nipped pretty bad (he only has half his rear fins right now), and I've identified the other cardinals as the culprits. Other tank mates include galaxy rasboras, endlers, and dwarf cories... Is this normal behavior, as in is that just their "peking order"?

    I feel bad knowing that his injuries could progress into a fungal infection but he has not had an infection as of yet and he's been continuously nipped for as long as I can remember... Should I be concerned?

    In case this matters my params are as follows:

    Ammonia 0
    Nitrate <5
    Nitrite 0
    pH 7.2

    Thanks ladies and gents!

    EDIT: It is a school of 10 cardinals. I just rembered this is important to note.
