More sorority questions. (I know, I know.)

I set it up 3 days ago and Chell (orange) won't stop chasing Trucy to the point where trucy has stress stripes. Asami and Alvalta sometimes chase her, but not as much as Chell. It feels like Chell really hates her.

Should I be concerned and QT one of them for a few days?

I think so, but she flares at trucy more than the others.

seperate chell from the rest, then reintroduce her after a few days.

Float Chell in the tank for a few days in the tank with the cup she came in or a breeder net/box. That will hopefully teach her a lesson. I think feeding Trucy more high-protein foods than the rest will strengthen her up a little bit; like conditioning the male and female for breeding since it's so energy-consuming.

Yes, that should be enough. As in higher protein; I mean frozen BBs, live mosquito larvae, tubifex worms, things like that.

Another thing you could try would be to cup all the girls, rearrange the decor then release Trucy first and Chell last.

I am getting my sorority tank set up and I am super excited :)
