Talking Finally releasing the girls in my sorority tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the big day! Well hopefully, if not than definitely Sunday! Anyone have any tips on releasing the girls? Any advice is much appreciated :)

Are these the first girls to go into the sorority? If so then just release them two at a time if you can and do it quickly so they all get in right away and no one claims a spot first. You can feed them directly after, they may or may not be interested by 9 out of 10 bet's that they will be ^_^ this will take their minds off of the new places and faces for a bit while they get used to being touched by another girl and then most likely a little chasing and flaring will ensue but they should be fine otherwise!!

Everything has been going really well! There was no major fighting and there seems to be a pecking order already in place with a few girls being the most dominant. I haven't seen any attacks at all but a couple of my girls are getting what I can only explain as ripped fins. They don't really look bit but more teared so they look like a crowntail now in certain spots. Does anyone know what could cause this? Or is this typical for girls in a sorority?

That's typical, they nip each other's fins all the time. My girls still do it so I just use Stress Coat all the time as my conditioner.

That's good to hear. I just bought the gigantic bottle of stress coat because I've been going thru the small ones like crazy!
