Exclamation Dori needs help..what do I do?

Hey everyone, I had started a similar thread (link: and this is my first experience of fin nipping, I would like to know what I should do about Dori..I have 5 girls in a 10G tank and I got back from work this afternoon and found that Dori had been nipped a lot in my absence..I immediately put her in her cup but left the cup to float in the tank as I don't have anywhere else to put her, and also didn't know if it would be a good idea to take her out of the tank completely as I have just set up my sorority..

I know that fin nipping is normal, but I just didn't feel comfortable at all leaving Dori in with Maggie (who I think is the Alpha at the moment) always attacking her especially when she looks so fragile shall we say, this has all happened over the past two and a half days approx...(I put them all together late Wednesday night at around 11pm)..

I'm considering doing a swap, placing Lily back in after her time out (she's been in time out for a day in total as she was also attacking Dori.) and placing Dori in Lily's tank....

Petco closes in like an hour so any speedy advice so I can run out and get whatever materials I need that you may suggest I buy. I have Bettafix and aquarium salt which has already been added to the 10G..
