Yeah, I don't know how to explain the jaw locking thing other than it was as if they were just biting each others mouths and holding on and it looked as if they were kissing xD

When I re-introduced my girls a few of them locked jaws. In my opinion its not too dangerous as long as they stop after a bit, they're testing each others strength. Cichlids do the same exact thing, its just part of them trying to figure out which will be the Alpha. Now everything is peaceful :)

Well until I add 3 more females tomorrow that is......

I figured that's what it was...but after a minute or two, I felt like I had to separate them :) Glad Im not crazy / the only one that has seen that :D

This thread is a few days old so if you already have your up and running I hope it is going smoothly. Sororities can be a little stressful.

If it helps here is a pic of mine. I recently upgraded it from a 10gal to a 29 long so I also added a bunch of females make 11 now. I haven't had much problem with them getting along.
hellooooo
