How do you tell an alpha female in sorority?

As my title states; how can I tell which of my girls is the alpha female; they all seem a bit laid back and no one seems to rule :(.

It's a GOOD thing that they're all laid back! You don't necessarily need an alpha female in a sorority. Consider it a blessing that you don't. If you did there would be a lot of stress and nipped fins in your tank.

Thats ok; I just assumed in a sorority they all had an alpha female. I really want to upgrade their tank and get more girls but then they are happy as they are.

I've had minor nipped fins; a milimeter or two in size but nothing worse than that.

My latest girls fins were torn to shreds in the shop (she is gorgeous; white body with purple butterfly colouration to her fins - I would love to breed her with my male :)); anyway back to point; her fins are growing back well now; and I've noticed no agression at all. She is very nosey too :).

The girls are all laid back; the only time they get a bit feisty is at feeding time and then they are still calm.
