In this talk I will outline our research into the evolution of perturbations in coupled quintessence with multiple fluids and scalar fields. I will explain what coupled quintessence is and why it is of interest and will introduce a new Python code developed by myself in conjunction with my collaborators. There are a vast number of different coupled quintessence models and potentials and we have developed a general code to allow the testing of any such potential - PYESSENCE. I will also present some initial results from this ongoing work and outline future work utilising this new code.
