I won 3x peppies bn at the auction the other.

i've placed them in my 2ft tank that has some guppies, 2x small panda cories and 1x peppie bn. 

 

its' a pretty minimally scaped tank, with only 1 piece of driftwood centrepiece. 

 

i noticed the morning after, they were kind of all over each other a bit trying to get the best spot. 

my original one looks like it has slightly torn fins. 

 

i thought they were meant to be peaceful! :( 

 

do i just need to chuck in so more hidey spots? 

(they all around the same size, probably less than a year old)
