They do not bother the glofish still. I want to add more fish but I want to solve this problem first.
Under the specific circumstances here, the only way to solve the Red Minor problem is to remove all of them. A group of 8-12 on their own in this 36g tank is the minimum, and there is no guarantee this will keep them relatively "nice" to each other; but as soon as other fish are added, the tank space is decreased (to the fish) and trouble will ensue.
