My Sorority Tank (all Petsmart Rescues)

It's day one of having all the girls in there! There were a few nasty little fights last night, but it seems to have calmed down. 3 of the 5 are now pretty submissive. Only 2 are still duking it out, but one is a loner and is fine unless provoked. We'll see how it goes. :) As promised, here are my photos. Driftwood is going in today!

Red:


Big Bertha (was a bit beat up already when we got her):


Mabel (as you can see, she had a nasty fight. Ruby took that one chunk out in one shot as Mabel was running away):


Erie and her reflection (potential dominant):


Mabel & Big Bertha:


Ruby (potential dominant, but a loner/hider):



Mabel and Red (they're attention seekers.. so cute!):


Erie and Ruby face off:


How long does the fight for dominance usually take? How much damage is too much? Ruby & Big Bertha were in pretty rough shape when we got them. Their cups were a disaster and their fins looked like they had been nibbled (though they were housed separately... dunno how that works).

Wow they have really pretty colors! I especially like Erie! Her color pattern is cute.

Also, the fights usually last a day or two (at least that was how it was for me).

If it lasts any longer than that, you should take out the one that is making the most trouble. Too much damage is really your call, but you should take into consideration that if there are (SCALES) coming off, then it's time. You may also want to look at how much percent of fins are on their bodies.

My husband took some nicer pictures today. The girls are already starting to heal from the pet store damage and their initial tiffs. Only my little piggy Mabel wouldn't pose for the camera. She was in a food coma. ;)

Erie, the dominant:



Big Bertha:



Red, the attention lovin' lady - She's more vibrant in person:




Ruby, the tough little runt. She has a beautiful blue shimmer to that red in the right light. (I was worried about her, but she's finally starting to eat and relax a little. She's a hider.)



Happy holidays everyone! :)
