Sudden nippings and deaths?
 
Around 2 weeks ago, I purchased 3 neon swordtails. Yesterday I found one of them dead. I also noticed one of my platys was missing a lot of it's tail fin and my cory is missing half of its tail fin.

They all live in a 20g tank with a aquaclear 30 tank. The fish in it are:
2 neon swordtails
2 harlequin rasboras
2 sunset platys
1 albino cory cat.
What can I do to stop this?

hey there I think that you might have to do some research on your fish to see if the have to be in large groups. Some fish start acting aggressively if there are not enough of that that kind of species in your aquarium. I would look in the tropical fish profiles above and read about all your fish. After that I would go and google them too to look at other profiles of those fish.

sorry about your looses my friend good luck!
