    :) No prob. Most girls usually settle down after a few battles. I've only had one girl who wouldn't, out of a dozen girls. Good luck!

    Hi teeney! Basically, I separated them each into their own tanks for a week and then reintroduced them again. I tried my best to add the least aggressive girl first so she had time to establish herself before her more aggressive tankmates were added. Oddly enough, the trick that seemed to work for me was fasting them for several days after I added them. The third time I added them, I came down with the flu the next day and was too sick to feed them. When I finally felt better, hunger had overruled everything else. Ever since, they've been very close.

    Thanks! I am relatively new to bettas so I was super nervous when I started mine too. I added my four girls about 5-10 minutes apart and after a very brief but very scary battle they were fine and have been ever since, just make sure to keep an eye on them and be prepared to remove any girls that don't want to play nice. I also keep them together during water changes (in a giant bucket reserved just for fishies) which I think helps keep them calmer when I put them back in the tank. I totally redid their tank today and have not seen a single nip :) Good luck!!!
