Greetings from stamford CT.

I have three rd eye tetras and I believe they are nipping at my other fish tails. Has anyone experience this and if so is there anything that can be done to stop it.

Welcome! If you have the space to do it add there more red eyes. That should help!

One of my old good friends is from stamford!!

Anyways, tetras are a bit nippy, not as bad as barbs, but close enough that I dont keep them with anyone that has long fins. But like someone else mentioned, increasing shoal size can help lower their aggression.
