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.
how many do you have and what are your parameters?
I do not know about neons, but most tetras play fight. They chase each other around the tank and might nip each others fins, but will not do serious damage to each other.
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.
My neons did that when I had them. As long as they aren't showing phycial wounds they are probably ok.
