Female betta fish are similar to horses and wolves- they establish a pecking order within the group. You'll end up with an alpha female, the subordinates, and an under-dog female that may or may not take the brunt of the chasing and bullying of the other females. Your girls are sizing the new addition up to see if she is a bully, or will fit in with the other females. They will flare and try to intimidate her, and if she responds in an incorrect way, chasing and nipping will break out in the tank. Keep an extremely watchful eye on them- it's often a good idea to float a new addition to a sorority in a jar or net breeder, so that they can get familiar with one another without the risk of injury.
