I’ve just added an extra 5 silvertip tetras to my 36 gallon tank which already had 5 Silvertips. Really wanted a nice schooling fish for a 10-15 fish school and they seemed to fit the bill, but they’re now chasing each other around and fighting. I don’t want any of them to harm each other!
Are they just establishing a pecking order and if so how long will that take? Or would it be best to take the old ones out for a few hours and re introduce them to try and merge them into one school or will that not work? Really wanted a nice school not a WWE wrestling match.
