Well I'm pretty sure Faye took command... She flared at Nina (previous #1) just now and Nina flipped and swam off.
Faye can make herself look just as big as the PKs with her finnage. Probably going to ask her previous owner about her parents since I'm now seeing how gorgeous she is, now that she's flaring her fins all the freaking time. lol
I'm not even sure if her previous owner bred her, or if she's from another breeder, but I can definitely say that she's much higher quality than most pet store females. Just messaged him about her story. We'll see what he says!
Sorority's are so funny...I have had my 13 girls in a 75 gallon for about 2 months now...Most of them are new but the original girls came from a shallow long tank...and were originally very territorial... Because of this i think the original alpha is still "queen"....Magma, a red fully developed female was the alpha in the shallow tank, and is still trying to win authority in the large tank.
I have a butterfly, or rose i think...if not a SD...and her tail was bit up recent;y...A few of my VT's are also bit up, and magma is perfect...so i might take them out for repair then add a bunch and rearrange tha tank at he same time...
I find it funny though how they almost pick on each other to diminish the tails or fin to establish or maintain an authority...
lol well at the moment, Daiquiri is in the "Naughty corner" until I can introduce Sora and the newest girl, who should arrive Fri. She was tearing apart everyone else and pretty much established a dictatorship. Everyone else is getting along!
Mew is doing fine. She's come out of her shell quite a bit, but she's still her old curious self! She's actually developed quite a few more spots, so I'm almost positive she has a type of marble gene in her. If she turns blue I'll freak. My fish like turning blue. Jayde used to be emerald green, if that says anything. lol... I'll have to scrounge up some pics of Mew for ya. :)
