Shimizoki's Sorrority

So I was walking around petsmart and saw 3 girls that had amazing colors. I didn't know they could get this colorful. Either way I picked them up so I guess I am making a sorority. Right now they are all in their old cups (thoroughly washed out of course) while they go through some QT. They will stay in QT until I find a few more girls so I can get this started. Either way here are my girls.





They will be going in here with a few tank mates (~12 neon tetras, 3 Cory Cats, 4 Ottos). Also I need to add a few more hiding spots for them to keep them happy and not killing each other.

Its a 45gal, It measures approx 36x12x20 (LxWxH). Yes, all the plants in it are live plants. The picture was actually from a few weeks ago, all the plants have grown a bit more.

It contains:
3 Clumps - Elodea/Anacharis
1 - Amazon Sword (Possibly Reproducing?)
1 - Java Fern
1 - Water Wisteria

How do I edit the OP?

Your bottom female reminds me of my Alma, though she's a bit more steady purple. Love them all, can't wait to see what other females you get! :)

Thats what I thought at first as well, but then I saw the "Egg Bump" on all of them, I'm pretty sure they are all females.

Thanks for all the encouragement guys... I will check back at Petsmart in a few days, as well as swing by Petco and Wal-mart. Those are the only nearby fish stores.
