Hey

My Serpaes seem to be scared all the time. I bought 6 of them from the shop and 3 died. Now 2 of the Serpaes are always hiding in the plants. They only eat from the top when all the other fish have finished eatingg or they eat from the bottom of the tank. There not sick there just scared all the time. Are they normally a scared type of fish. the other serpae acts normally and swims around normally.

Serpaes, like all other tetras, are what are known as "schooling" fish. That is, they do best when kept in groups of six of more (with more being better, space permitting). I bet that if you add a few more to the group the others' behavior will improve. :)
