I think it's true.. I tried to release the copper now..around 10 minutes she didn't chase the small females at all...
but there are still flaring and a lil bit of chasing tho...dunno when it will end O___O" *still watching them..

update day 2 :
a nipping on my Salamander's Anal Fin =_=
dunno which one who nipped her..

this morning I found my Small Red Plakat is chasing everyone..so I cup her now..
The Copper flares at everyone who go near her...but doesn't chase other fishes (is that mean she's an Alpha?). But I found her followed my small Black Red HM.. just afraid that She plans on something to hurt the little black one..XD oh no..

I'm in the process of planning a heavily planted 29 gallon sorority/community. I really want to have corys, kuhli loaches and females, and possibly something else for a middle-tank fish. I get my substrate next week (eco-complete, had to order it online, much cheaper there) and then I am going to plant my tank. I plan on adding the bettas last, and it probably won't be for a few weeks (hopefully I can keep my patience!!!). Aquadvisor says my tank will be 99% stocked with 5 kuhlis, 6 females, 6 corys, 6 rasboras, and 3 amano shrimp...but I am not really sure what I will end up with once I actually get the tank started.

Anyway, this might be a dumb question, but if you have to remove females and rearrange the tank, how do you do it in a planted tank without disturbing all the plants? Or is it just not really possible?

Azure, when you introduced the new female, did you change the items in the tank around?

I would remove them all, change the tank around to look different and then add them in at the same time - sometimes that will help.

nope, I didnt change the background at all...
well I put all of them in at the same time at first...
now the copper, red giant, and the salamander are never fight, only 2 of my little bettas (red plakat and the black red HM) that keep flaring to other 3...
I put them in the breeding box now inside the tank, hopefully in the future I can release them without fight anymore.. :)

I don't know how long your girls have been together but sometimes it takes a few days to a week or so to settle down. 2 of my girls, when 1st introduced 2 months ago, literally tried to kill each other, i put one into an opaque bowl for a few hours floating in the tank, then re-introduced her with little to no problem. I currently have 10 females in a 46g & they do a little chasing but not like they did in the beginning. One of my smaller newer girls, about 2 wks, actually chases my largest oldest girl. Unless the aggression is EXTREMELY bad & causing injury outside of nipped fins, I would let them work it out. You may need to add more plants (real or silk) &/or structures, I don't know what size tank you have.
