My Sorority Journal (Picture Heavy)

I wanted a place that I can keep a running journal on my sorority. There are currently 7 girls and today was their first day in the 20 gallon tank. I'll mostly be posting pictures and text when necessary.

Before adding the girls




Acclimating to the new tank




Girl 1, needs a name!


Girl 3, needs a name!


Lily


Princess Peach (The current bully)


Girl 6, needs a name!


Aquabid Girl 1, needs a name!


Aquabid Girl 2, needs a name!

For girl 3 what about Luna? She reminds me of the moon with her colors.
Aquabid 1 looks like a Jetta (it means dark)
Aquabid 2 could be Rowan (it means red tree or something)
Girl 6 maybe Bonnie or Wisteria?
Girl 1 to me looks like a Dahlia (I don't know why)

The Messiah approves of this forum.

Day 2 Updates

So far so good. I forgot to mention yesterday that someone or something tore up Aquabid Girl 1's dorsal fin. However, I am happy to say that has been the only injury thus far. I'm terrified of some kind of catastrophe to occur and I end up with only 1 female left or something. Hopefully I have done everything correctly and can catch a bully when I see them to prevent this. Like Princess Peach who was being a royal pain in the butt!
Now for pictures!

Some of the girls having a meeting on aquarium etiquette


"I'm a little cory short and stout..." So far Lily has been keeping stripes, but I'm not sure why. I don't really feel like it is stress, maybe submission?


For some reason she really wants me to see her belly. Maybe it's her sexy pose.


Here's the girl with the injury, but you can't really tell in this picture


Trying to make escargot

they're all so pretty! nice sorority. I have 4 separated females but i'm reluctant to form a sorority because I don't want any torn fins or injuries. I know its supposed to be temporary but it still freaks me out

I'm having the same trauma right now. All of my girls look fine except for the girl with the torn dorsal and now Lily has either been bitten or torn her fins as well.

Yeah torn fins are going to happen no matter what. My sorority has been up since mid-March-ish and I still get torn fins! Of course I did just add a new girl and it usually takes a little while for them to settle again but there will always be someone with ripped fins and that's why I use Stress Coat all the time (lol sounds like a infomercial XD)

I love your girls though! Loving the AB girls too ^_^ nice intense colors and the CT's! I only have one and I really want some more but I'll just have to look around more is all

Well didn't get around to taking pictures today, but not much has changed anyway. Luna has a tiny amount of her anal fin missing.
However, poor Lily has been picked on a good bit. She's got tears in all of her fins so I placed her in the breeder box to relax for the day. She's almost twice the size of everyone else, but is definitely the most submissive female. I released her this evening and no one is giving her a hard time at the moment, but I am keeping a close eye on her.

Things have settled down a little, but not before seeing a few more nips. I am going to put them in order by their current rank in the hierarchy. Everyone has a name now too!

1. Delores Umbridge (she acts all sweet and innocent, but is really evil)


"I will have order!"

"All of the plants are mine!!!"

2. Mulan (her tail reminds me of one of the chinese fans so I went with that idea and decided on Mulan because she is beautiful yet tough)



3. Princess Peach (She kind of looks like a peach and thinks she needs to be treated like royalty)



4. Nova (she's like a little explosion of energy and her colors remind me of space)

I had to chase her around the aquarium for 5 minutes to get a picture!


5. Luna (she reminds me of the moon and Luna Lovegood because she is a little strange)



6. Lily (she is the soulmate to my male Severus Snape)

You can see the tears in her fins, but she doesn't have stripes anymore


7. Meg Griffin (No one likes her and she doesn't fit in)

You can see a little chunk of her anal fin missing
"Mr. Snail will you be my friend?"
