I would say you need to even out your numbers, have the best male/female ratio. That usually clears up any aggression between fish of those types :)

Males usually harass females and females a noticeably plumper from a top perspective when full of eggs. I would also recommend that you bump up the numbers of glo fish, they are schooling fish and they will pick on the weaker ones when in smaller groups and will target them

What type of glo fish do you have? The slim bodied ones that come in a wide rane of colors? Or the plumper ones that just come in green?

Okay, the. If you can't find access to any glo tetras then you can get black skirt tetras as they are the same species

Well I called a petland near me and they said they will have some glotetra's in later on in the week so they should be fine till THursday right?

If I have a 20 gallon tank and have the following fish
2 red tetra
3 candy cane tetra
3 Glo Tetra
1 Pristella tetra
3 cherry barbs

can I add 3 more pristella's and 1 -2 glo tetras without overstocking my tank or is that a bit too much?
