Ohhhh I was just wondering

I don't pull my females out of my main till its time to strip. I'd be afraid if I took em out for a period of time they would lose "rank" and be bullied when reintroduced. So I just scoop em out, strip em & put em back in

Yea I guess that's a tricky situation since ya just got a 10g to put em In! I got 3 holding in mine my gang are pretty rowdy so idk if they would accept the female again if I took her out and put her back in...

Congrats on your babies!!!
