Hello I am impatiently waiting to get a male pearl gourami for my 55 gallon aquarium which has had 5 young adult happy female pearl gouramis since early May. What is the best way to introduce him to his "harem" of females? I do understand the acclimation procedure but just wondering if anyone has any tips on increasing the chances of having them "get along" right off the bat? Thanks!
