Ehh, I'm just going to say that your tank is overstocked but only the goldfish makes it that way. NOT going to bash you for it, I had 2, 1/2" guys in my 26 for a few months with some tropical species too, till I was able to re-home them, and with enough filtration and water changes, which I'm sure shaina performs, her's will be fine till they are re-homed!
As for the original issue, shredded fins, it's to be expected at first, how long have they been together? If its been over a week then you should probably go get more decorations and hiding spots, but if not then they are probably still trying to sort out dominance. Goodluck with the tank!! And -- when you rehome the goldfish I would suggest adding a couple more females to the sorority just to even things out a little better

as for the 3-4 in a 5 gallon, thats just not enough space for them to live without constant fights eventually. I wouldnt risk it. 5 gallons just doesnt give much room for them to swim and hide from somebody higher on the totem pole.

Nope, still have Maestro the goldfish, but my sorority got Columnaris and wiped out my girls, leaving my platies alone once again. I have a cute little male betta in there now, giving up on sororities for the time being

That's kinda scary to me because I'm starting a sorority soon :/ Maestro is a cute name, though, lol.
