Question oddesa barb bullying its kind

this has been happening for a while now.i have two oddesa barbs.so one relentlessly chases the other oddesa. the bullied oddesa hides in its plants and the agressive oddesa barb wont mind after it hides.recently the oddesa is no linger chasing and fighting with the poor guy. what do i do? .i do want to keep the oddesa barbs but if its getting bullied i will just return it back. if i do need to remove it how do i remove it? its too fast . also,can remove the agressive oddesa and let the passive one stay ?

They really should be in a larger group. A minimum of six is recommended. If you can't get more of them, I'd bring them both back to the pet store.

Yup - the little buggers are fast. Use two nets and keep one at one end of the tank and slowly get behind them with the other net. When the swim from the one you have behind them, scoop them up with the other one.

Good luck.

I find that removing the water from the tank makes the fish much easier to catch.
