My wife is getting a 10gallon for Christmas to house a few ADFs lol so; another thread for another day!!!In a newly cycled tank, you always want to play it safe and stock with a low bioload and stock slowly.
Yeah, fry for a later time... which will most likely mean more tanks!
That makes sense; I envy your patience!!Some might be more tolerable than others. I would acclimate longer. I usually add half a cup of tank water every 15 min up to 2 hours.
