As for colors, my original blues did not make it. I did not see any fighting, so I am not sure *why* they did not make it. I now have a teal and a cornflower pair of blue(ish) VTs, and they are fine. I've tried to get as wide a range of colors as I can, so I have a lot of variety: white, cambodian, yellow, orange, red, black, lavender. My teal occasionally tries to boss the others around, and has been put in a timeout a couple of times, but they've by and large all been very well behaved girls. Except at dinnertime, when everyone has to try to get the same pellet even though I scattered over a dozen around

i had 3 in a 5g planted tank and they are fine, some chasing, no nipping, no fighting. 2 x 20% WC per week + 1 x 50% vacuum & WC per week in fully cycled tank with 2 Biomax running in the foam block. water is crystal clear.

the smallest one is a PetCo baby now 2 months old. She likes to hang with the big fish but the biggest one Curious Grace hates being followed, so she had to turn around and chase her away. But I can see that Jes needs a mother/sister-figure, just innocent kid.

there is a new gal that I introduced, have not figured out the name, she was trying to be the top betta but CG is much bigger than her. So now, shis is fine being #2. She even let CG eat first when I drop a pellet in even though she gets there before CG.

Both chase Jes when they see her trying to swim near them. But the plants in different heights help break the chase. I take Jes out using a cup at feeding time. She is trained to swim in. When I release her, all the others would swim into the cup to eat the NLS Grow pellets leftovers, including the gluttony amanos....

So far no fights, it's been a month.
