First the sad. My dear Ivy somehow managed to bump her temporary home's coving back enough to jump out onto the floor while I was at work the other day. I will not look at another green girl without remembering her. My poor sweet Ivy. :(
These pictures were all taken last week during a water change in order to have a starting point of how they all looked before going in together. I put everyone together earlier this evening, there was one incidence of lip locking which I broke up and one girl just did not want to back down even though she was getting pretty beat up. My littlest girl, Chicory. I finally took her out for a short time and reintroduced her, she finally gave in and allowed someone else to be the dominant female. Everyone seems to be staying away from each other right now, except for Lily, who at the moment is the alfa. Here are the girls, pics are a bit blury, the lighting in my house stinks.
Chicory - Sustained the most damage, she so wanted to be number one.
Daisy - She was on top until Lily decided to assert herself.
Dalia - My little stress case, but she is holding her own after observing her competition.
Fusia - Poor little girl seems to be at the bottom of the pecking order.
Harlequin - Sustained the second level of damage, she is in the middle of the pecking order.
Lily - Currently holding the title of number one.
Poppy - As tough as she was housed alone she mellowed out with the others and hovers somewhere in the middle of the ranking.
Sage - She was the one that lip locked with poor Chic, which I broke up; no other such incident.
