I had a similar problem with Black Phantom tetras, 3 males/2 females. One of the females was very aggressive to all the others, and the second female was showing outcast behavior like yours. before I could decide what to do about it she suffered a mysterious death. Seems a bit Cichlid-ish for what were supposed to be non-aggressive fish.

But then I'm all about peaceful tanks, which is why I have pygmy cories and shrimp...

I actually got the fish for my peaceful tank but so much for that Well, they seem happy now that the one has decided he's better off with the pleco. Only thing is that the pleco will be moving to a bigger tank soon and I'm not sure about moving the tetra around with him in case the pleco gets territorial in the new tank.
