Beautiful Fish! I usually name fish after there personalities. For example, my goldfish King, is very dominant. My fish Shimmer, had a very bright and curious personality.

Well, people always say that there should be groups of females 3-4 in a 10 gallon tank. Any less they will pick on eachother and beat eachother up.
Keep a close eye on them, you may have to separate them.
Hope it all works out great!
Your new females are cute!

You also should have more plants and caves in case they do decide to pick on each other. 1 plant doesn't give them much place to hide.

I would definitely separate them asap. In small groups like that, they can be as aggressive as males. You can definitely tell by their stress stripes that they're not too happy with their situation. They may be docile now, but you never know what you might wake up to in the morning.

I would go no less than five an a tank that's at least 10 gallons. As for temporary housing, I'd grab a kritter keeper (maybe $3-4) to put the other one in for the time being. Even a 1/2 gallon tupperware container will work for a couple of days until you have the money. I had to do that for one of my girls before I got the sorority together. She didn't like it, but it was better than having two territorial fish in the same space together.
