remember atleast 4 no more then 6 for a sority , helps spreads out the agression... i have 4 girls now and so far no problems...

when u first introduce them there will be pecking and some chasing but that is establishing who is the dominate of the group...and everytime u remove them re-arrange tank and put them back they will re-establish that order...

remember atleast a 10g tank ...

10g Non Planted
-Red (CT)
-Lucky (goldfish ((wifes fish lol))

Not true. The more females the better, it helps spread out the aggression.

The bigger the area, the better chance a sorority has at getting along. Ten gallons is minimum, though 20 gallons would be better.

What size tank are you planning on putting the sorority in? I couldn't really understand if it was 200 or 10...

I would get five at the very minimum, and I go for the 20 gallon. You will have a lot more success with the 20. 7-8 would be a great number. Just remember to plant it heavily.

Edit: Yes you can four, not five, I forgot you already had a little girlie lol :)
