Thank you cbirk,
I was getting a little nervous here but am glad to know that this can be normal behavior for them.
Never thought of that. I have other tetras in my tank ( 6 Glowlight, 6 Black Neon and 10 Cardinals) and they are all very peaceful so I just assumed that the Seprae Tetras would be too but I was wrong on that one. It may be because of what you said, they really are the largest sizewise in my tank besides the Powder Blue Gouramis. My Powder Blue pretty much stays to itself so they don't see any threat there at all. I had to laugh a little bit one day because one of the Seprea Tetras was swimming behind the Powder Blue Gouramis and I saw the Gouramis stop and back up a little bit. That sent the Seprea Tetra dashing off in the opposite direction. I guess the Gouramis was sending him the "Don't try that crap with me message" lol.
I have 8 Panda Tetras in my holding tank and they will be added in about 2 weeks. I don't think that will make much of a difference though because as I said in my intial post, the Seprea Tetras pretty much chase their own kind. I'm just not use to it and was wondering if it was okay for them to do that. I am keeping a close eye on them though to make sure that no injuries will result in their aggressive behavior. So far it hasn't and I am keeping my fingers crossed that it never does. They are a very pretty fish.
