Fat aggressive silver tip tetra
Hi all,

I have 5 silver tips that i have had for 2 weeks. I have not managed to work out yet which are male and which are female. They live on a diet of flaked food, brine shrimp and bloodworm.

I have 3 slim ones, and 2 that the bellys hang lower, one of which is alot "fatter" than the other and has become more aggresive over the last few days.

She is fine with the other fish (Mollies and common loachs) but when the other tetras come by her she chases them away.

Can she be carrying eggs or could there be something else going on?

I would suggest posting photos. What food do you feed them and how often do you feed them?

I have tried my best but these are the best i can do, they are speedy buggers and I think tey are abit camra shy.

This is the one, when you look from above it looks slightly rounded compaired to the others.
