Set up my sorority today!! :D

So i spent the day carefully changing the water and setting up a ten gallon for a five girl sorority (because it also has four khulis in it, i cant add any more than five). I already had Speckle and Kisses, so i needed to get three more... I went to walmart first, and looked at their girls, sure i wouldnt find anything good... And low and behold, i find a BEAUTIFUL DOUBLE TAIL female!!! o.o OMG!! I also picked up what i thought was a little yellow girl... Yeah, not so much. XD She has already turned blue with a green wash... Though she may be a MG, not sure... Then i went to petsmart and found an orange girl. :) I will say now, there has already been some fin nipping, but nothing terrible! And i am so happy. XD


Now, pictures!! They are not very good though... Some blurry... >.<


First, the ten gallon... Is this planted well enough for them? There are a billion hiding places in that red and green plant alone.




And now the girls! :D

Orange unnamed:


Double tail unnamed:



Color changing female unnamed:



Speckle and Kisses:


^ Just realized that is Kisses and the orange girl, not Speckle... XD Whoops.


What do you guys think? Any tips and tricks?

I would personally put in a couple more clumps of plants as the front of the tank is pretty bare. The more plants and cover you have, the less fighting there is going to be amongst your females.

I just have one question. Are you sure the female flaring in the first picture is a female? It reminds me of one of my PK males who I originally purchased as female. Have you got any close up shots of it flaring as it looks to have a big beard for a female.

More plants? I can do that!! XD

And yes, i am sure Kisses is female, i have had her for quite a while, and she has the biggest egg spot i have ever seen. XD She doesnt really have a beard either. And i got her out of a sorority at a pet shop.

Hmm... I got a bunch of plants for anywhere from a quarter to fifty cents each... That big one was 75 cents though.
