I am having a problem with fin nipping, I don't know if the CPDS are doing it to themselves or the glowlights are doing it. I have 1 male CPD that has almost no dorsal fin, its definitely been nipped.

DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE THE PROBLEM OF FIN NIPPING WITH GLOWLIGHTS?

I have not seen any aggression from glowlights but they are the smallest fish in the tank. The lack of taller plants in your tank was the first thing that got my attention: your fish has no places to hide or call their own.

I figured out which were the bullies and I am returning them today. I had 6 albinos and 2 regular and the regular were too big for their britches. So, back they go! The albinos were even running for cover.
