Dido and Venus are doing great. I put their cups next to each other and they've been very social, no stripes at all and chilling right next to each other. Andromeda and Albica are both more shy, both showing stress stripes when put next to the other girls. Andromeda got better when I slowed down the socialization, but Albica shows stripes as soon as I think about putting her next to another one of the girls. Grrr I'm worried bout putting her in a sorority

They're all in the sorority! Dido is definitely female.

Some fighting at first, albums being the instigator, but as soon as she got nipped she went and sulked in the corner, making her the low man. Venus and Dido seem to be codominant, and Andromeda just keeps to herself. In the end only Albica and Venus got any fins nipped/torn, and they're both very minor. Albica is still hiding but the other three are pretty social. Aliquis has been checking out the ladies from his tank, which is right next door. The girls make him look HUGE!!!

UPDATE: the girls are doing great. Albica has become much more social, and all of their stress stripes are gone. Albica still clamps up a little when the other girls get in her space, but other than that she's been pretty good. Aliquis is over as close to their tank as he can get, fins spread wide. I started conditioning everyone last night. The girls still don't quite get the whole process of food coming from the sky. Hopefully they'll get it soon!!!

I believe my first pairing will be Dido and Aliquis, since Dido's the only one a different color than Al
