Depends. They will nip fish with long flowing fins, especially if they are kept in a small tank. Also, they are schooling fish so they will need to be kept in groups of 6+ to stay happy.

In my experience, to agree with Ches, they will be aggressive in groups smaller than 6. I would recommend having no smaller than a 20g tank for a group of 6+.

Ok that's good to know because I had 2 and one killed the other and I will be returning the aggressive one and trying a different species. Ohh and another question I also have 3 orange Von rios and they have a bunch of white spots on them what should I do?

White spots = Ick. Raise the temperature to 82 F or higher and add salt to the tank. Or you can buy medicine available at your local fish store.

Here's a good sticky on this site about dealing with ich. Raising the temperature is part of treatment, but it needs to be done slowly...don't just crank it up all at once. Hopefully someone else can chime in with the time frame for raising temps. Good luck.

In most cases 82 isn't warm enough. Ich has been known to survive up to 89 degrees.. but 86 is a better number. Just make sure there's plenty of water agitation because higher temp means less oxygen. And as said before do it very slowly.. 2 degrees per day at most.

Sorry to hear that.. if concerned.. I would break down the tank and wash everything with a mild bleach water solution then rinse extremely well, replace filter media and start the cycle over. IMO its always better to be safe than sorry. If you have a qt tank, I would set that up first and get your start on quarentining new stock in that first for a month before adding to your main tank.

I suspect that on top of the ich your tank was not cycled.... Just my opinion, but be sure that you fully cycled the tank before you re start to add fish.

It should be dead by now with no host. you could just put some bleach in it real quick to make sure though, just rinse well afterwards.
