I have 6 females for my sorority, just, three are isollated. I left them in their cups for 3 days, a week for my oldest female, and then put them back in.
The plakats, since they were the ones who were put in before my oldest VT female, procedded to fight eachother like there was no tomorrow. So, i put my VT in. Sure enough, she did what i hoped, and brought one of the plakats down to size, asserting that she will be the only one to push the others around.
In truth, it was a dangerous choice, but, after a quick spar, the older VT had brought the violet Plakat to submission. Now the older VT is chasing everyone else. I intend her to show the other plakat who is the true boss of the tank, then, put the VT back into her cup.
This all is going down in the 6 gallon tank, as the 10 gallon won't be here until April 2nd. The older VT pretty much is the tyrant and ruler of the tank. When shes in there, there is no flaring, no fighting. Just submission. Quite fun to watch, not the fighting part. That is bad.
The main reason i put her into the tank is because the plakats were going at eachother like wild animals. They werent flaring, just tail-slapping and fighting pretty much. Wether or not this was to show whos boss, I wasn't gonna allow one fish to die because the other thought it was superior.
She will only be there to make the others remember whos the true boss, then, she will be re-isolatted.
