I hope everything works out.

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.

More plants and more hiding places. In a 10 gallon you need to have it packed so much with plants and other crap that you can barely see the back of the tank. Also watch out for that filter, I had it on my sorority and it sucked up 2 of the girls and killed them. I would advise a sponge filter.

Also from my experience when you are looking for the females, (if you haven't gotten them already), get most in similar sizes, and then buy one that seems a bit more aggressive and bigger then the others. That way the Alpha will hopefully be obvious.

Good luck.

The sorority looks really nice, but I would agree that you should just stuff it with plants. The girls really need to have space to get away from each other if needed.

As for picking out females just go for small ones in general. Sometimes if they are younger it works better. But I have found that the size of the girls really doesn't matter. If they are going to get along, they will get along.

Always have a backup plan for a few girls if one or two don't play nice..
