Angry Sorority fight!!!

As the title says, I woke up to feed everyone this morning. The females get super piggy at feeding time for their bloodworms, so much that there was a three way argument. I watched them to make sure it was not so bad. The scuffle ended with my CT female, like always, being top gal. She has a few missing scales from it too, but I noticed her and my small female (that was really giving her all in the fight) are now only using one 1 pectoral fin. I have the alpha female in a cup with salt for her wounds.

I just wanted to know if this is common after fights or if they both could have damaged them and what I can do to care for their needs.

Any advice would be awesome! Thanks guys! ^_^

Good to hear that she is ok. If it is a new sorority, they are just setting up their pecking order. Are there lots of hiding places for the female bettas in the sorority? If there is an overly aggressive female in my sorority, I usually put her in a tank inside the tank for one day where she can still see the other females and things are usually fine after that. If she is still a bully to all the other girls after that, she gets her own tank.

They have been together for a few weeks now and yes there is a lot of hiding spots. They don't fight much, just sometimes over bloodworms.
