Sorority sizes?

The title is a little misleading, but I have a huge female with 4 other girls half her size. Nobody seems spooked, but Claire is challenging her for dominance (Claire was the leader, not sure how it is now.)
Are size differences okay?

Why did I become a fishkeeper in the first place...? Because someone has to look out for the fish who have no one on their side.

The size difference is definitely more risky, but in the end it all comes down to personality. Some bigger girls can be complete pushovers, and some tiny girls can be holy terrors...it depends on the individual fish.
So long as your tank is a good size and is packed good with plants, just keep a close eye on everyone.

Yes, I have mixed tiny girls with big ones and had no problems.
