Talking Tank of Dreams Ver1.0

Hey guys, well I literally about an hour ago introduced the girls. Everyone got along fine except Janice.....though the smallest she thought she could be alpha female.... I removed her because she was getting beat up pretty badly.
After only a few minutes of chasing and nipping it looks like things have settled down and everyone is getting used to one another. Carmella seems to have taken lead as alpha female with Adrianna close behind. Rosalie has been very calm and non-aggressive the entire time. Backing down from any and all confrontations. Meadow fought with Carmella but now knows to stay away. Here are some pics.
Do you think I should try to reintroduce Janice when she is a little bigger?

Thank you dramaqueen! Things are going well so far. Still some nipping and chasing. But there are plenty of hiding places for them.

Oh my goodness, the way they're lined up in the last two photos... 8D
Each one is so different in colour, it really shows off each girl!
I hope everything goes well<3

Wow!!! They are so cute and awesome! Love the different colors.

Some people will get a breeder trap, or holding container, and float it in the tank so that the other girls get used to her and she does too.

AlexXx, I know. They are so awesome! I'm just glad it went as smoothly as it did....I thought it would be harder than this, because I have two very dominating females. I am going to try to put Janice back in eventually, but she is alot smaller than the others and she got beat up, no visible injuries,though, and she seems fine, I just got scared and took her out.But 4/5 being thrown together, isn't bad.....especially since this is my first large tank (10 gal) and then a sorority can be tricky. But all my research helped in the end!

When and if you do put Janice back in, they'll rearrange the pecking order.
