for an example, i added all 5 of my girls in a set up sorority tank all at once. they all freaked out at their new enviornment and were stressed for 5 mins and were flaring and chasing for a few days. There will be fights over an alpha for the most part, but some girls wont fight. My girls amaya and sakura fought over dominance big time. they ripped their fins right off 0.0 kimiyo is my omega- the weaker scared one of the whole bunch. she hides a lot and gets scared of the filter sometimes. she sometimes gets chased by my other girls. At day 6 they all got along and now no one flares or fights :P if its over a week and they are still getting nipped or torn, id take em out and seperate them for a while.
the alpha picks on everyone at first lol. the omega gets pushed around and may get chased a lot. I have noticed in odd numbers, sororities usually work. kinda like a wolf pack :) if you lost a girl, there may not be enough hiding spots or there may be one that is way to mean for a sorority. Take the mean one out and put her in " time out" ( i floated amaya in a cup for an hour as time out while her sisters could enjoy the tank) i strongly advise to get plenty of aquarium salt to help their fins :)
if a betta doesnt eat like a pig something might be wrong XD every betta i know even at the stores eat a lot and can eat themselves sick LOL. bettas always seem hungry... piggies :)
