Adding new fish.

    Once a tank is cycled and I add a few fish how long should I wait before adding more. I just added three bronze corries today and 3 zebra danios. I am going to get some type of pleco (other then a common) and probably a couple more platys and a couple more zebra danios. How long should I wait to start adding these fish?

    with a newly cycled tank, i would wait a min of 3 weeks between each addition of newbies...especially after adding the ones you did today..those arent super tiny fish and its usually recommended 2-4 inches fish each time(in newly cycled tanks)..(of course you have to include bioload and such)

    Hello,

    Congratz on your new fish!! :)

    Usually about two weeks to give the beneficial bacteria time to adjust to the bioload adding a few fish at a time.
