Fins nipped and frayed are normal. I only worry when scales get missing. Honestly it's my trio of blues who are the snarkiest, to each other.

From what I've experienced. The more girls the better, the less less fighting. They are pretty mellow in my tank. 8 girls will flop over each other in a writhing mass! Food! I have one girl who sticks to herself, but she is about three times the size of the rest.

okay..I already put my females in my tank..
At first I put 4,, 1 Salamander Female, 1 Red HM Female, and 1 Copper Female, 1 Black Red HM Female...

then the Lost 1 is the Black Red HM..since she's got the least size of body
the 2 of them (Red HM and Copper) keep chasing this little small Back Red HM..
(I use chopstick if the chasing get worse, just in case tho.., so they change their focus to my chopstick).
Then because of the Unbalance situation, I put in the Red Giant HM..and yes the situation seems get better..
now the least position in the pack is 2 now...Red HM and Back Red HM..
their colours seems paler than the rest 3...
The Red Big Giant HM seems more gentle than the Copper....
The Copper HM love to chase the females that smaller than her..
(my question is, should I take the Copper out?)
I still watching the situation tho...

the only victim now is the corry T_T he got missing eye (one on the left) sigh
I don't know who nipped the corry...*sad*

should I put Melafix inside the aquarium?

okay..I already put my females in my tank..

then the Lost 1 is the Black Red HM..since she's got the least size of body

(I use chopstick if the chasing get worse, just in case tho.., so they change their focus to my chopstick).
Then because of the Unbalance situation, I put in the Red Giant HM..and yes the situation seems get better..
now the least position in the pack is 2 now...Red HM and Back Red HM..
since I put the Red Giant HM, the Black Red HM went out from its hiding place, then start to fight back....
well...I saw that the red giant HM seems protect those 2...
but still their colours seems paler than the rest 3...(sometimes turns to normal, but sometimes paler
The Red Big Giant HM seems more gentle than the Copper....
The Copper HM love to chase the females that smaller than her..
and I got the situation when the Red Giant HM protect the small Red from the Copper, and those 2 start to flare each other..

(my question is, should I take the Copper out? seems the most naughty one now is the copper)
I still watching the situation tho...

the only victim now is the corry T_T he got missing eye (one on the left) sigh
I don't know who nipped the corry...*sad*

I usually cup the agressors like that for two days them release. If she's still naughty cup again. If she is still naughty she may not be cut out for sorority life. She may need to live alone.

yea cupping them seems to help some of the more agressive females change their attitude. It prevents them from attacking so it helps them to relearn behaviors. At least thats what I think happens.
