good morning,
I have been reading all of this page, and I wanna start a new sorority too :)
now I have 2 female (I separate them tho..)
1 is already grown up, size 5 cm, 5 months age
1 still 3 months age, size 4 cm
I attach the comparisson too

if I put the bigger female into the tank with the smaller 1, will the smaller 1 is going to be beaten by the big 1?

oh I plan to add 2 females again tho... (still searching other females before I introduce them to each other)

and I'm wondering, is size 3.5 months still a baby? when They're growing up bigger, is their agression also getting bigger too?

thank you so much

plan to put them in 30 litre tank :) (60x25x24)cm

Minimum is ten gallons four females though personally I think five or six girls is better. I wouldnt put two alone. Pick u out a few more gals. Release at the same time. I have a twenty long with fifteen girls for abt two years. I still saw aggression at every stage of putting it together and still see nipping. I keep the water super clean and that keeps away fin rot. The thing to remember with sororities is having enough girls, super clean water, and patience.

Oh I never had a problem with size differences. Some of my small gals were meaner than the big ones.

I had two females together. It didn't work, so I split them. I'm not aloud to get any more fish. So I can't have a sorority. I'm planning on putting my male, oasis in the big tank and putting rose in his old 1

thank you for ur reply... well I still confuse between put my Male and Female alone in the 30 litre tank... or start a sorority, but I don't want to take a risk if the couple will mate, so I think I wanna put few females in there...
I hope 4 females would be okay^^i I'm afraid they're not comfortable too if the tank is too crowded..

I'll really monitor them tho.. looks like am gonna have a few sleeping times for few weeks, hahaha... incase that they will be rough to each other..

I'd go with the sorority. A male and female together will either breed or fight to do the death.

*walks off with Azure's tank*

no seriously it's great. Some more taller plants would be great. I'd suggest a few stem plants like cabomba (my favorite) and wisteria.
