First off, what size tank is it? For female sororities you need at least a 10G tank. You'll need to get another female or two. The more, the better. With just three, two of them will single out one and attack it like you're experiencing now. Their tank also needs to be heavily planted with either fake or real plants. They also need lots of hiding places.

I agree with everything above. Sororities need to have AT LEAST 4 females with 6 or more being ideal. With aggressive fish you have to have large groups.

With 3 females, 2 will gang up on the 3rd one and probably harrass her to death.

Sometimes too they just WON'T get along, I tried a sorority of 4 and 2 picked on the other 2...so I removed the ones picked on into separate bowls and I left the two bully girls living together, they got along fine. BUT recently they accepted two new females I bought. So the 4 girls now are great. They just didn't like the original girls they were placed with. I think it depends on the personalities sometimes. You may have two girls that just won't accept not being dominant.
