Yes, I have a sorority of females and one male halfmOon and I love my girls. They are way more lively than males. My 2 Cambodian CT females are the life of the whole tank. And the girls are more active and fun to watch so yes i definitely recomend a sorority with at least one male preferably kinda laid back. Lol don't want him bein to feisty now. :)

I've been thinking about it, I was at petco today and I haven't been there for a like amonth. The cups were dirty but the associate was taking out new cups and was starting to clean them one by one. I looked at the bottom and found 3 females. I found a yellow one which I think is sick but I would love to get her. After that there was a pink one next to her she had a red dot on her head like a koi which was really pretty. Next to them was this blue green female who was really pretty but I think I can only get 2 so I might take the Pink and the Yellow one. I'm gonna put Mable and Lucy with them but I have to think about Mable since she has a spine problem.

I understand that it apparantly works for you having a male with females, but advising it to others isnt a good idea. ;) Not trying to get all up in your grill or anything, it's just not good to have males with females, ever. :)

Oh, and OP, 3 females wont be enough in a sorority, you should get a couple more :) That way the aggression is spread out. :D

Lol I am I have t 2 famales with me already and a spare tank so when I get 3 more feamles I can introduce them all so lucy wont take up everything. She somewhat aggressive, but she's sometimes nice.

OH MY GOD!!!!! Something Happened to LUCY!!!!!!!! I was looking at the tank and noticed that something was wrong with the filter, I could't find Lucy cause I saw her hiding on the castle-thing. When I lift the part when the filter takes in water I saw her fall off. OMG I'm so mad at myself now. I'm so dumb. I think she broke somethign cuse her whole body is shaped like a letter U. I just want to cry right know. Why can't I do anything9 right. :'(

Oh no! I was just gonna add that an odd number, 5-7 girls would be the best. This way they can spread the aggression amongst themselves without getting their booties clobbered.

I would take Lucy out and put her in a small shallow container just to moniter her for injuries other than her shape ... I hope she pulls through for you. But it sounds bad. I think you should post in the Emergencies/Disease section.

OK thanks, I already seperated her on a floating cup and gave her food, just a little bit to see if she can get them and she can but not all.
