    Bizarre yoyo loach behavior

They seemed fine at first, but when I tried to reintroduce a fish into the tank, one of them started going out of its way to attack it. Even after I took the fish back out, that...

I'm very fond of corydoras, and before the barbs, they were thriving and spawning. But I'm now noticing some of the cories have slightly nipped fins...
