I have 6 neon tetras in my 10 gallon tank, I had three and added three more two days ago. I am a bit worried because they all seem to fight with one another. I know if one is sick he will get picked on, but this is pretty ridiculous, they all seem to do it to one another. Is this normal for neon tetras. My three I had were so peaceful together. Is there anything I can do to help solve this problem, or will they work it out? I just really don't want to lose any fish to something I may have been able to prevent.

Do you have any plants or decorations to break up the tank? This way they can be alone if they want. I have 5 in a 10 gallon and they nip at each other too.

This is pretty normal in a tank of this size. In a larger tank you tend to observe more natural tendencies toward shoaling and less toward territoriality.

I have a small wood centerpiece, 2 fake plants and two live plants. Well that is sad to hear that they act like this in a 10 gallon, maybe I should work on upgrading in the near future.
