Bully. lol

Okay well. I have a sorority tank. I have this one female and every time its time to eat she would chase away everyone. I watched her ate probably around 6 pellets. Im thinking shes doing that because she doesnt want anyone to get food. Lol
anyways do you think I should put her in her own tank? :P

I was checking them out. She's the only one that I can see that has a nipped fin. I can't see any damage to my other fishes, other than sometimes they are hiding and just the pne girl is swimming around

I'm no expert on betta sorority, I'm about to start one, but based on what I've read if you feel it is endangering (going to kill fellow sisters) then remove it from the sorority. Not sure how long you've had the sorority but assuming its newer setup sometimes it takes a bit for them to get acclimated to each other before the fin nipping/body slamming ends. Hopefully someone with more experience can confirm, good luck!

Remove her temporarily, just a couple of days or so, let the others reestablish their hierarchy, and then re introduce her. When you put her back in make sure you float her in the tank for a little bit to let everyone get a look at each other. Hopefully this knocks her off of her high horse for awhile, but sometimes they are just big bullies, and if the problem persists she may need to be housed alone permanently.

Thank you. I will try that. And I definitely wouldn't have any problem housing her by herself if needed.
