Yes it is. I already know that i am over stocked. All My stock is in my signature. A friend came by my house and dropped off 4 black skirts, 6 red eye tetras, 3 rasbora's, and 1 big pleco. Either they go in my tank or they get flushed. I have increased my water changed to 30-50% water change depending on water parameters. Also hooked up a spare 10 gallon filter also.

Is the rasbora you are referring to the orange fish with a black dot? I believe it's a tetra. Hyphessobrycon serpae (Hyphessobrycon eques)

Correct, Dasmall.:thumbsup: I had them before. Vicious fin nippers they are.:blink:

I just got word from my lfs that their customer suffered heavy losses after his serpaes attacked the cardinal tetras which are very expensive here.:blueworry:

They should be fine with the serpaes, Nick. Those tetras can handle the serpaes but cardinals can't. As your tank is big, you should be fine. Just keep a close eye on serpaes. I had them before and they shredded my angelfish's fins.:blueworry:

I still avoid the temptation to buy serpaes. They are so tempting but my experience has me avoiding them.
