i added 4 sibling girls to my 20g that already had 1 female in in it (along with 4 raboras). The Original female tried to be dominant, but then that girl is HUGE. Thankfully she is also slow. The tank is planted, with a big piece of driftwood that a couple of the girls lived under for the first couple days. But after a few days the big girl got tired of trying to chase the others, and now they all get along pretty well.

I add new females to my sorority all the time. The originals will usually henpeck the newcomer a bit but I've never had anyone be so aggressive they need to be permanently removed.

Usually it's the newcomers I've found who tend to be the aggressors and instigators.
