I know that you should only add a a fish or two to an aquarium at a time and they should be isolated for a short time frame, but I have some other questions about the subject. Does the isolation tank need to be cycled, or could I put my fish in it while my real aquarium is going through the process of being cycled? What about schooling fish; do you add 1 or 2, or a shoal at once? Also, I don't live anywhere close to a pet-store or place that sells fish (don't worry, I can get supplies relatively easily if I have to). We don't often travel to places with fish for sale either; so if I add fish one or two at a time, it would take me well over a year to stock my aquarium! Is there a way around this? I know you can buy fish online, but the shipping is so expensive and it would cost me A LOT. Like $100-200+ a lot. Just for the fish! Any advice or ideas? Thanks!
