Fat aggressive silver tip tetra

Hi all,

I have 5 silver tips that i have had for 2 weeks. I have not managed to work out yet which are male and which are female. They live on a diet of flaked food, brine shrimp and bloodworm.

I have 3 slim ones, and 2 that the bellys hang lower, one of which is alot "fatter" than the other and has become more aggresive over the last few days.

She is fine with the other fish (Mollies and common loachs) but when the other tetras come by her she chases them away.

Can she be carrying eggs or could there be something else going on?

I would suggest posting photos. What food do you feed them and how often do you feed them?

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Click insert, upload image then browse. You should then be able to go through your files until you get it, then click insert, then standard.
