They will nip wherever they feel would do the most harm. Just keep an eye on them to make sure they aren't truly doing major damage. It's always a gamble with sororities, lets just hope yours settles down soon.

Thanks again myates, I think it has mostly has. soon as I took that one girl out everyone settled down pretty well. I was mostly just wondering because I hadn't seen it referenced anywhere that they would bite places other than fins : ). Can I assume it's normal for the alpha to remind the girls who's in charge every now and then? like during feeding?

Yup, they will nip anywhere they can. The fins are the most common areas as usually one is swimming away and the other behind can only grab onto the fins. It's sneak attacks that gets them nipped other places. Silly fish.

And yes, the alpha will remind the others often who is in charge. If you decide to replace the girl with another, make sure to rearrange the tank prior to adding her in. I would cup them all, keep them out for a bit, then float all their cups together in the tank, releasing the more gentle ones first.

Will do, being picky and selective with the possible replacement as much as I love girls I dont' want to end up with 10 females that need to be housed individually

Exactly. If your LFS has a tank with multiple girls in it, I would choose one from there over a cupped one, as then you know at least that one is acclimated to living with other girls. =)
