Question Please Help me release my sorority :)

Tomorrow is the day that quarantine is FINALLY over. The girls are all currently in separate QT containers that are all next to each other and the main tank. Tomorrow I am going to go to my LFS and pick up some bags to float them in, but if that fails then I plan to go to the dollar store for some tiny glass bowls for the job. I am planning on letting them float for a few hours, but I don't really know where to go from there... I read everything I could find and there is varying advice. The only thing I know for sure is that they need to go in the tank from least aggressive to most aggressive.

I have 9 girls. One is a giant, who is not necessarily aggressive by nature but can be. The smallest is a very young CT. I want this to go as smoothly as possible, so if you could help me answer the following I would really appreciate it.

At what intervals and in groups of how many do I release the girls?

ziplock bags should do the trick for floating them. Personally I would just let them all go together. Watch for a day or 2. Remove any you think aren't getting along. There will be fights and flaring. Don't panic. They'll get over it.

Although I'm not sure how you should I know that I started off with my current 3 and I put my girl who was in a cycled 5 gallon first and let her float for an hour and then added her and gave her an hour to get use to it and then I let my other two in and let them start about an hour and a half then released them. I then got two more girls a few days later and added them in. I didn't know about least to most or what not I just let them go lol I would say let your smaller one go first possibly so she can get use to the tank. But I know one of my small girls that I got a few days after I started was kind of beating up on my two big girls! So I'd say good luck and do when seems right :)
