I'm wondering why my Rummynose tetras are hiding at the back of the tank when the aquarium light is on? When my bedroom light is on and the tank light is off they're out swimming. As soon as the aquarium light comes on they hide. It's a 20 gallon tall hexagonal tank and there are also cherry barbs and a black molly too.

No they don't look like they're being nipped, the tetras and barbs used to be fine together. It wasn't until after I put the molly in that they started hiding. They do come out to eat but go right back to the back of the tank and swim back and forth at the back of the tank.

OK thanks. I just noticed that they are slowly coming out more. I will get some this week. How many should I get?

OK thanks. Do you think they may have been stressed out because I added the mollie?

I've just added 2 more Rummynose tetras making it 6 in total, they do seem to be more out and about in the tank as opposed to before having them hide.
