    I habe heard tetras are known for fin nipping especially the bigger ones (which i am hoping to buy). I have a 25 gal which i will plant and was wondering if my molly amd platies will be okay with them?
    Thanks and I would be happy to answer any questions

    They can be a bit nippy, but mollys and platies should be fine with them. in fact, mollys and platys appear to be more fin nippy than most fish. However, it depends on the aquarium size and other behavioral factors. Even if a fish is sick, they might get picked on more. Now tiger barbs which aren't tetras, those are beyond nippy.
