New betta sorority

I bought 4 CT females today and they are flaring at each other and nipping. Is that good or bad?

that sounds normal for the beginnings of a sorority. They should calm down within the day, unless you have a girl that needs to be by herself

How big is the tank? Can we see a picture? Nipping is normal but it can become to an extent that is stressful to the fish, without enough cover, this is very common

thats why your girls are so nippy. If you had more cover and a few caves they wouldn't nip as much
