black tetra nipping
Hey everyone. I just wanted to tell you about a recent discovery. I just set up a 20 gallon tank for my son. We got our first fish yesterday. two Mollies, three Black Tetras, and three other type of tetras which i forgot the name. All was peaceful. We wake up this morning to find the Black Tetras fins nipped . They were nipping each other. Yesterday afternoon I purchased an eighteen inch flexible bubble tube for a twenty gallon tank. (recommended for a thirty gallon but that was all they had). So this morning I said let me try turning off the bubbles, and low and behold, they stopped nipping instantly! Bubble stress!
amazing huh. Just like people, too much stress, we start nipping!
never would have guest!
