    Hi, all!

    I am very green at this -- have three neon tetras and a suckerfish -- beginner's tank! This morning I noticed one of the tetras is being harassed by another; had his tail nibbled on, looks like a fin too, and does nott look good -- his red color is paler,stressed and breatthing funny, poor guy. LAst night they were all fine.

    Advice, please? Thanks!

    Like tiger barbs, neon tetras are better kept in a group of 5 or more. This will spread the fin nipping around and no single individual will be too excessively harassed.

    Thanks -- planning on getting some more; was waiting to stabilize environment (which is good), so...will do it today , and hope she survives (I think they were picking on the one female).
