Arrow Stress Stripes on my 2 newest females

They are new, like within a week new. I had moved them twice sense I first got them, once to a 10 gallon tank, from the 29 gallon tank and then back to the 29 once I got it setup. They are both active, but sometimes kind of hide. They have had the stress stripes sense the minute I picked them up to view them at Petco. My question is How long will it take or does it take for them to go away? I don't plan on moving them anymore for a good bit now, but may be adding new room mates for them, still undecided on that though.

Are they little girls..? Like a bit smaller than your other grown females? Because when you usually have the younger females they tend to have stress stirpes while they start growing more and their colors start to develop.

I'd say they are smaller then the rest of them in the tank, but about the same size as Ruby is, and Gwen and Velvet are the biggest of them.

Does she get picked on a lot by the other females??? This could cause I constant view of the stress stripes. Try adding some more hiding places to help her feel more secure with her surroundings.

Well I have a whole new setup thats why I first moved them to the 10g, But they all seem to get along. Very rarely will any of them chase the other, and I have seen them all give chase or be chased, and thats it. Nothing more no tail nipping just kind of run them off.

Well. If she is active and is eating and is getting along than its probably just because her colors havent fully developed..

I had a few females in the past that had stress stripes for awhile, but got along fine and soon lost them after they change colors dramatically. :]

I hope she keeps her dark purple looking color, the other currently makes me think of a tiny little rainbow trout in a way lol.

Haha. Her colors might just brighten up a bit and stay the same shade. But you never know.. Bettas are so unpredictable! lol
