You should change your fish.  Bueno Aires tetras are lawn mowers only
slighty surpassed by silver dollars.  I've seen them eat stands of Java fern
to a nub.  They're eating the Hygro first, because it's the
tenderest/tastiest.  When they're done with that, they'll work your other
plants over.  Get rid of them.
