How bad are her fins?? Females can take some serious beating before they are actually in danger. If the male is constantly chasing her or nipping her body instead of her fins, that's not good. But chasing every few minutes is fine, and fins grow back. :)

My males are always in more deanger than my females LOL. My females will always be like "Um I don't see a ring on my fin I don't think so." Then she starts shredding him :P. My last male is still regrowing his fins :P.
