female community tank

hey guys :) i just have a quick question...yesterday i put 5 female bettas in a tank gallon and they are all happy and quite hyperactive :p they are really cute. but what my question is, 2 of them have a little bit of nips out of their back fins, which is normal. but how long should it take for them to establish a "pecking order"/ hierarchy. i have a feeling of which betta will be the alpha female, but how long should it take for everythign to be established with them? thanks!

It will probably take a few days for them to establish a pecking order. Make sure you have plenty of plants and hiding spots for them.

Usually a couple days. Have lots of plants and hiding spots, like dramaqueen says.
