So I finally got my sorority tank up and running! And turns out I'll be here for the summer so I'm trying to figure out what to do with my girls for two weeks when I get to go home before it all starts.
SO I believe I added my 3 girls about 4 days ago and just added my two newest members about 2.5 hours ago.
I know that 4 is the minimum for sororities and 6 is max for a 10 gallon tank. But I also know that with enough cover 3 would be ok as long as no one was deathly aggressive or dominate.
Everything seemed to be going well until I noticed Opal having floating issues and having torn fins.
Here is what my 10 gallon looks like
I have driftwood in my 5 gallon currently that I'm making sure is really ready to go into my 10 gallon. Here's a picture of it in my 5
I'm pretty sure everyone will love it if it is ready to go into the tank tomorrow.
Here is what Opal looked like before
This what she looks like today
She seems ok but I'm wondering if I should let her go into my 5 gallon for a few days (since I have the two new girls) and then put her back in when she seems better OR if that's just the regular order of things and to just make sure she doesn't get worse?
Here is the rest of my gang
Maybelline (her tail fin and dorsal fin have some rips in them but nothing serious)
Ceylon (who doesn't show any signs of being beaten up)
