I just set up my tank, and it seems like my cichlids are getting bullied by the last two lemon tetras I have yet to get out of my tank....

why would this be happening

Your cichlids are wusses? :lol:

If the cichlids are new to the tank, they havent exactly established dominance.

I had a 100 gallon saltwater with damsel fishes. Brought home a Pterois volitans (lion fish), and they harrassed him unmercifully (for 3 days) Two weeks later, they had either been eaten, or hid well.

Give your cichlids a week. The tetras will learn, easy way or hard way.
