Exclamation sorority issues...fin tearing galore

Hi, so lately my girls have been tearing eachother up! I had to give 4 salt baths today... I got 2 more girls to see if that would spread out the aggresion (grand total of 8 girlies!)) and nope one of them needed a salt bath today...(the other has one rip in her tail thats it) So help? My tank is 20 gallons and stays at 80 degrees. What do i do???

Add more plants and hiding places so they can run somewhere to hide when someone attacks the other.

well i rearranged the tank and added my only spare plant and they dont run and hide they ALWAYS 24/7 are at the surface or middle of the tank. Once in while they will be at the bottom but they dont really go in the caves. And when someone picks on one of them then tehy dont go hide they stay put! All but four of the eight girls are BADLY ripped.

Maybe you should take out the aggressive ones and put them in their own little tank or something then. If this goes on they're not gonna live for long
