New 30g tank... Neons are fighting!!!
Fish have been in the tank for 3 days. Everything was fine. Today they won't stop attacking each other. I thought these were supposed to be peaceful fish? Should I remove them? I plan on stocking more fish next week.

All tetras must be kept in a group, six is usually a minimum number but in adequate space more would be better. They are shoaling fish that often interact in various ways, and without sufficient numbers they will be stressed, leading to health issues. Before you add other fish, ensure you have a sufficient-sized group so they will be healthier.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
My neons did that when I had them. As long as they aren't showing phycial wounds they are probably ok.
"He situates himself in relation to time. He takes his place in it. He admits that he stands at a certain point on a curve that he acknowledges having to travel to its end. He belongs to time, and by the horror that seizes him, he recognizes his worst enemy. Tomorrow, he was longing for tomorrow, whereas everything in him ought to reject it."
