They are pretty girls but you should separate Penny and treat her for the ick before it spreads to the others.
Gwen looks a little fragile and a case of ick might finish her off.
Hopefully you have more than these 3 in the tank?

Because female bettas are aggressive--almost as aggressive as males. Three bettas means there will be one betta who will end up getting picked on the most--the other two have a chance to gang up on one and single them out.

The more girls you get(say six) the more the aggression is spread out. Every girl gets a chance to not be bullied and gets to have a rest. Pecking order is less severe.

Thank you - upon researching no where can I find that you NEED to get 5-6 betta's. Cross referanced 3 sites that states that you need 3 or more bettas in a 10 gallon tank. It also states that you need to watch them to make sure that they are not fighting and should buy them all at the same time so the risk of them fighting is less. They also state that odd numbers are better then even numbers. So due to this research and my husbands google fu I will stick with what I have and take action if this proves to be an issue.
