Ugh what buggers

Okay so i went and got another female today
(I know i know, ANOTHER?)
Well anyway, i split the tank that one of my other females is in, and left for like 2 hours
My other female jumped my divider and is with the new one, there is no flaring or darting at each other
but what can i do to keep her from jumping back over again?

Well im pretty sure i fixed the problem
I got a closer look and the new females fins are a little bit tattered up, and the other one barley has a mark on here, but their seperated and hopefully can't get back together

I have had this problem with my divided tank. But mine was male + female! lol First get the one that jumped over, out of the other side back into her side. I would lower the water level a bit so she can't get over. Also, do you have a cover/top for your tank?

I did that as soon as i saw her

I already fixed the problem
I used some netting mesh stuff i had and taped it onto the lid so when i closed it, it would dangle right over the divider so there isnt JUmping space at all

Ya thats always good. If they are pretty severe than I would QT with salt, but if she is improving, just make sure her water is clean and she will be all good!
