Depends on your definition of success & success for how long? I had a sorrority & one by one the females died off, I have one left & will not be adding anymore females.

sororities are definitely not for inexperienced fish keepers. it is better to introduce multiple females at the same time rather than one by one as the pecking order is still established. multiple females will disrupt the order. prepare to provide ample amounts of hiding places for the weaker and smaller females. not caves and such but more like thickets, where larger females would be slower or unable to chase them. violence is usually high the first week or two until everybody learns their place.
