Came home from a sleepover at a friend's to find that three of the girls had escaped their cups. No injuries or tears in fins, so I'm going to let them deal with themselves and set up their hierarchy, since they only had three days of QT left anyway. NO idea how they got out, I hope the other two newer ones don't get out o.o

Try covering the holes on top, they can jump out of them sometimes especially if the cup is tilted like you have them. I find it better to fill the cup almost to the top so that it floats upright and they don't try to jump straight up because they know it won't work.

Just be super careful though is all. They should be fine, but keep an eagle eye on them just in case

Everyone is doing awesome, though River was a pig this morning and kept grabbing food from everyone XD No aggressiveness, though I feel like I'm waiting for a bomb to explode.

Ugh, I'd kill for a DT female! I can't get one locally, they never have any, only CT and VT.

Very pretty girls, I hope it all continues to go well. I remember that bomb feeling like you are describing. I felt that way for about a month. It's been since March and my girls are doing great, hardly ever any issue. Even when one gets a torn fin, it's super minor.

I am absurdly jealous of your DTs! I had two DT females but they've both passed and I haven't found any since. My Petco doesn't have them but maybe they'll start carrying them.

Lovely sorority!

My petco usually carries them, and that's all they have at my LPS. Though the ones at my LPS aren't very colorful, I was surprised that they had a blue one. Usually they're just a really dull red and all have stripes on them (not sure if they're stress stripes or wild stripes.)

Thanks!

Most likely stress stripes, there's really no "wild stripes" except for wild type markings on the fins but the bodies are always solid due to the plating of color, they're not exactly capable of keeping lines like that except for marbles but that's a completely different story and not at all wild types haha.
