My largest girl passed away I think the other five ganged up on her sometime today. Everyone looked fine this morning, but when I brought Gabe up to bed she was at the bottom with almost all her fins ripped off. Two other girls had a tear in their back fin, and one had stress stripes. I got her out and did a water change and hope the remaining five are feeling alright in the morning. We've also decided we are not adding anymore girls to the sorority. As the fish in our 55 start to grow more we'll be transferring a school of tetras to the sorority.

We had one more girl pass away today. With only four remaining I gave our original three girls to my brother for the sorority we just set up at my dads, and am floating my little white girl in the 55. My brother currently has my three girls floating in their own cups, and five other girls floating in cups in a 20. It's heavily planted with mostly silk plants I've put together, and plastic tubing and coves all over the bottom for hiding spots too. I'm really excited for his tank, I got to put a lot of ideas into it that I had wished I had done with mine after I had it for a while.

I'm going to continue updates with this tank on the thread with my 55 from now on. I haven't decided which tank I will keep Princess in, but I can't handle a sorority again :( I'm just thinking of ideas for this tank now.
