Heres my new 14g sorority
i have 5 ghost shrimp,some mts, some pond snails andsome assasin snails in it since before i got the females..
heres the story on the girls, i started with 5 females.. 2 veiltales from petsmart,they were on sale for 1 dollar each.. then i went to petco to check out the fish there the same night and i got 3 crown tails for 4 dollars each..
1 red vt
1 black/blue vt
1 light blue ct
1 cambodian ct
1 blue/red ct
so home i went and i added the 5 girls... they were all same size except for 1 red veiltale almost half the size bigger than the others.. from the start one of the crowntails was swimming slow and very shy and seemed very weak or maybe even sick.. i watched them for an hour.the big vt chased everyone except the small cambodian ct,the cambodian seemed to be shy and no one bothered her..
the big vt seems to hate blue fish and chased the blue ct alot..
the next day i woke to find the weak blue vt dead with her belly eaten away,so i removed her and did a 50 percent water change and i cupped the big red vt.this left me with 3 females in the tank and the bully floating.
the next day i noticed white spots. so i treated the 3 females for ich, it seems to be gone so i added them all back in and the big one still bullied even after 4-5 days cupped. ill be returning her..
the remaning 3 females get along ok for the most part these last 2 days, a little chasing,there was some nipping but thats mostly stopped now,the chasing is slow chasing now,more like just pushign someone away from their turf,they dont dart all over the tank like they did when the big vt chased and nipped them.. so for now the 3 females living relatively good together,ill get 2 more females tonight or tomorro
heres a chase
i cant get a good pic of my vt in there as she stays up top in the frogsbit all the time
