Exclamation Sorority girls hiding a lot?

My sorority has been together for 5 days now. My alpha, who I had before getting the other girls, is always swimming around, she is very active, it's just her personality. The other new girls have been laying around, hiding most of the time.

Considering they've been together 5 days- is this still normal behavior or are they stressed out? How long of this continuing should I worry?

My guess is that they're hiding from the alpha.

I have observed in my sorority that at first the alpha is the only one at the front of the tank and the others hide. Then gradually they all become more confident in their positions; the alpha is less aggressive if the others approach her territory, and the others establish their own territories and feel more free to explore. So far I have had two sorority groups (one group died off due to an unknown cause, now I have a second group) and both groups acted the same way.

LOL. Teeney, I'm glad you're asking all the questions I'll have next month, after my tank cycles. Right now, I think I've picked out who will be alpha and who will be omega, but they could surprise me.

Yeah, but the omega is really likely to be the one who hangs out in her plastic castle all day long, even though she has the bowl to herself. LOL. She's such a shy thing.
