Help! one female in sorority still has stress lines!

I dont know why, she seems to be well liked by the others! Is there something im not seeing or is she just meant to be a solitary fish?

Stripes and color changes are a form of communication and camo.....if she is otherwise acting her normal self and eating...the stripe may be her way to communicate that she is submissive and not stressed per se.....however, if she is hiding, clamped, poor appetite...etc....the stripes could mean stress.....

After I took her out and placed her in a 1 gallon tank by herself her stripes dissappeared but I also noticed her tail had been bitten on the ends. So I'm thinking the poor girl will be better off on her own

I'm glad my friend had given me a basic one gallon back when I had got my first betta Ace. I'm thinking my poor Pari was the punching bag for the other girls.
