How to avoid bullying

After a massive amount of faffing about I'm going on Sunday to purchase 5 minnows to add to my one survivor. Is there a best way to introduce the new ones to the current occupant? Should I release the new minnows into a fry net perhaps?

Thanks in advance

A common practice with large cichlids and something I have been doing with dwarf cichlids with some success. While it’s unconventional it will do no harm and may help.
I see no reason not to have 5 minnows in a breeding net for a day maximum, as long as you observe them for aggression. It’s not much different to fish being in the post in a small plastic bag?
