4 in a 10 gallon minimum. So a 10 gallon with a lot of plants and no less than 4 females might work out. Some just love to fight. So within a few weeks of fighting they'll establish the leader and get along.

Oh, you'll know. lol I have a 5 female sorority of my own... just established, so they're still working out their pecking order. There's a new leader daily for the time being. But whenever they switch I can tell which has taken command.

Somewhat like wolves but not with the feeding XD

The leader will be obvious, she'll flare at the others and keep them from misbehaving.

You'll need 3 more and a 10 gallon tank with heating, filtering and a ton of caves and plants.

Because, simply put, two of them will gang up on the weaker of the three, attack and harrass her to death, and then the two remaining fish will fight and more than likely kill each other. The more fish, the more spread out the aggression is. 6 seems to be the magic number.
