Whenever I am in the room, it seems like the Black Skirts mind their own business. I don't know what to do anymore. I am seriously thinking about taking all of the Black Skirts back to the LFS and replacing them with a different species.
I got tetras in my 55 gals. Aquarium (5 Black Skirts, 6 Sarpae, 3 Lemons,5 Red Eyes, with 2 Emerald Green Corys and 4 German Blue, plus 2 Chinese Algae Eaters). The only ones that created me troubles are the Algae Eaters .But is true those tetras are fin nippers. Probably the water condition for them are to low or high for them. I'm referring to the KH,Temp. or PH. Even the light could cause that conduct. Little bit of salt may help them. Just saying.
P.S. Fishes like Cory need some hidden places and plants to prevent those kind of attacks.
