Hi Dramaqueen,
If I take a female out of the sorority due to too much aggression, how long should she be kept alone? I got three new females yesterday to restock our sorority tank and the one that has been there from the beginning needed to be taken out. The new females are all about half her size and she really chased them around. She is currently sitting in a 2 Gal tank on my desk, but I sure would like her to go back at some point.

probably forever, but you could try to re-organize the whole tank and throw her in again, just watch her closely.

I would take her out for 2-3 days and then, like Sarada said, rearrange the tank and put them all back in at the same time. They will reestablish the pecking order and territories.

Another thing that works is putting your aggressive/problem girl in a breeders trap for a few days in the tank so she can get used to the other fish but can't get to them. It may help. It has helped me quite a bit!!!

I would start with that and let them get established...too many creature at one time can really mess with your water. And even then you are already well stocked.
