Help Im new at this and I want to be doing a good job.

I can't remember what happens with 2 females but if I remember right its not a good mix either. What sex are the fish?
Its good to ask and have help then do something wrong
Females can be kept together in "schools" of 5 (minimum)
but males cant be kept with either other males or females.
I have three females in a 5 gal and 4 females about to move into another 5 gal. i can have these numbers because all 7 are sisters (all from one spawn) and grew up together so there isnt much drama between them.
BUT you need 5 or MORE preferably gal for a sorority but its not easy keeping.
