Help: columbian tetra aggression with each other?
After seeing so many positive comments about them here on the forum, I recently added 6 Colombian tetra to my 30 gal. First several days they schooled fairly tightly but have now relaxed a bit.
Today one of the tetras is listing sideways so I watched the tank for a while and it seems that all six of them of them have suddenly become very aggressive toward each other - darting and nipping - so I suspect the 1 tetra got beat up a bit. They are not bothering my other fish.
Any suggestions on dialing down the aggression? If I added a couple more would that maybe spread out the bullying? Or is there a chance this will settle down?

It is not aggression, it is just their normal behavior. They are just playing, sometimes though, too rough. I would suggest upping the number of your school to spread out the "chasing" better.Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL
Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

Thanks Paul not Dave :o) I'm glad to hear that. They are fun little guys to watch, for certain. I'll be heading for my LFS tomorrow and will add 2 or 3 more. They are so pretty in the tank as well.

I've just starting noticing the same thing with my neon tetras. A few of them will chase and nip the others. I wasn't sure if that was normal or what. I hadn't expected to see that with them.130g: 4 Angelfish, 2 Roseline Sharks, 12 Conga Tetras, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora
