If it's not one thing, it's another

So last night during feeding time, I thought only one of my females liked the flake food while the others only enjoyed the pellets. Well, the one that likes the flakes was looking kind of small, so I put in a small pinch of food for her while I was fasting the others...bad idea. They all swarmed the small pinch, so I added a few extra pinches here and there so they wouldnt fight each other for whatever food they could get. I guess Didi had some damage done to her, as the area around her gills were looking a little raw. She knew I was watching, so she played up the part of the victim and started having some trouble swimming down and swam sideways a little bit. I put her in a little cup and had it floating in the tank so that all the other girls could wish her to get well soon. She was looking a little bloated and still has some scrapes, but is otherwise fine now. What a little drama queen! Guess who is going on a 2-3 day fast? Didi! (And maybe just my whole sorority, besides Jenny who is looking kind of small...I'll just separate her in her own little cup to feed her)
