Talking sorority journal and qeustions

so for the back story of all of this... read my thread "he poured beer in the tank" in emergencies.... so i want to do this right and i know when i first started with females i had more questions then EVER so i thouhgt this thread would be helpfull for everyone who loves thier girls todeath...

so basicly im going to try to keep a journal of my girls and how they are doing and whta im seeing for behaviour... i will also be asking questions

i hope you guys can do the same too
entry #1

the new girl is doing very well safire has taken her "rightfull" place as domniant... she flared once and everyone backed off... cinder seems to be right below safire in the new pecking order... and lucky... well i never knew she had a fighing side to her!!!! she is in a vase in the tank just seperated... untill she learns to behave....

QUESTION
should i just take Lucky out for a few hours then intoduce her??

4 females-lucky( the pet store owner droped her 5 feet infrount of me. She is healthy)
Cynder
Safire
Jayda
2 boys!

no dont take her out just isolate her from the rest put her in a baggie inside of the tank and then put take her out of the baggy and watch closely. i hope your females are okay:)

Also you said that she is the dominant one right so ever since that insident happened and they have been out of the tank she is going to have to claim her territory and show her dominance all over again.

The results are in!

UPDATE

lucky has been put in with the other girls and was quickly put in her place... the new girl has been named Jada because she is the same color of a budda statue! everyone seems to be getting along GREAT i have had NO torn fins at all ... seems like none of the hidey spots are ever used... may be thats because in the stor they come from there were only a few hidy spots for obout 20 of them?

A 5 gallon is probably too small. I would recommend at LEAST 10g that is heavily planted.
