I don't know anything about sororities, but I can say that stress stripes show up very quickly. Like it would only take about a minute.

Thank you eveyone for all this info/support :)

UPDATE: when I went to feed the Girls this morning and the bully and one victim came up and ate together with no problems :) but the other victim would not even leave her plant to get food and I couldn't wait I Had to go to work so she went without :( I feel awful. She has no stress lines or any fin damage. Is she going to be ok? :( I'm getting a 4th this evening, but that's the earliest I can get a 4th :(

I was told that when you first put your sorority together, don't bother even trying to feed for a few days. They're all super stressed from travel, gaining a lot of space, meeting others, and forming the hierarchy. Let them settle and be comfortable before trying to feed or they'll end up with problems.

I've got three in mine right now as well am having the same prob, though they're new to each other still. I would be getting a fourth but the place I usually get them was supplied with a bad batch. I bought two four days ago and both of them died, and they've had at least three more die there. Bad business, so my girls are just going to have to work it out for a bit.

They can go two weeks without food but I hope when things even out she'll pop out to eat. Maybe she's just shy. Some of them are. Whiskey didn't eat for the first 2 or 3 days I had him home.

That's what will happen when there are 3. Two will gang up on the third. I think getting a 4th female should help.
