Ok, but Blossom was actually bleeding in my hand when I picked her up, things got pretty bad with that introduction. Maybe I should try keeping Daisy and Blossom together in a tank, then Holly and Clover in a tank? Then introduce the pairs  to each other?

I somehow got lucky when introducing Daisy and Holly, I have never seen them fight at all. Daisy and Holly were the only other mice I have experience introducing, I had no idea it could be this hard lol.

Yeah, it can be awful.

Alright, break it down for me. What do you have going on right now. How many tanks do you have, who are in them, and how long have you had them/how long have they been together.

Ok, Daisy and Holly live together in a 20g, they've lived together for months and have a strong bond. Clover is currently living in a 10g all by herself, and the same goes for Blossom.
Edit: I have had Clover for almost a month and 2 weeks and Blossom about 3, almost 4 weeks

ok, got it.

And approximately how old is everyone and are they similar in size?

What are their temperaments like? Are they tame/friendly?

Holly and Clover are around the same size, I don't know any of their ages. Blossom looks really young, like she just got used to eating normal food. Daisy is really overweight, lol, not sure why, everyone eats the same food. 

Holly is probably the most well behaved mouse I have when it comes to how she acts towards other mice, I have never seen her start a fight and she does not seem to bother other mice much. She is also not afraid of me at all, but doesn't seem to enjoy handling very much. 

Daisy runs away every time I walk in the room, and it's very hard to get her on my hand, but when she is on my hand she seems happy. She is definitely the alpha mouse, and tends to create fights with other mice.

Clover is somewhat afraid of me, but doesn't hide when I walk in the room, she only hides when I lift the lid of the cage. She really enjoys handling though, and doesn't want it to end, lol. I'm sure after all that I've said, you know what she's like with other mice.

Blossom doesn't like me one bit. She yells at me when I put my hand in the tank, and seems really nervous when handled. She spent most of her time running from Clover... that's all I know about her and other mice.

Your idea of split introductions seems reasonable. But if it were me, I might wait a week and then try introducing all of them at once. Either way, before introductions, exchange nest boxes so they can get used to the others scent. Make sure everything is washed and make sure it is neutral territory. And if there is no blood, let them scream! When i do intros, i have to shut the door and go in the other room. I mean, i check back frequently, but i can't be in the same room. It's just too stressful!

Most of the time, despite how horrible it all sounds... my alpha just wants to thoroughly sniff the new mice and they seem terrified of it. I can tell she doesn't mean any harm, but the new mice always freak out. Then my younger mice are always trying to hump everyone and they other mice freak out about that too. I want to point out though that neither of those behaviors are fights, even though it might look lke it and they are screaming bloody murder.

My dad had the same plan, to put them all in at once. Since you think the same, it's 2 against 1. So I think next weekend I'll try that. Thanks for the advice!

I put everyone together in the large drawer I used before with a saucer wheel, and everyone got along just fine! Very little squeaking. When I put them in the tank with a freshly cleaned hide, water bottle, food bowl, and two chewing blocks there was a little more fighting, everyone was trying to intensely sniff each other. Blossom, though, doesn't seem to understand that concept. Blossom keeps running wild all over the tank, with Daisy following trying to get a good sniff, but failing and getting angry that she won't stand still lol. No blood so far though, which is good. When should I put the wheel in?

It's morning now, and all is well! I found them all asleep in the hide today. Looks like they worked everything out! Smile
