    Hey all! I promise I won't mix up names this time! ;)
    After months of reasearch, I finally bought two bolivan rams, that are extremly colorful thast I'm having second thoughts that they might be german. Hmm.
    Anyways, I have two tanks I could acclimate them too. But I can't decide.
    The first tank, would be my ten gallon. This would be a quarentine tank, obviously.
    It just has live plants and MTS.
    I think the nitrate level is maybe ten though.
    The second tank is my fifty five. Only half bare bottom and half sand. few caves & driftwood and two javas.
    Water quality is perfecto:) ~Thanks to fishlore~
    However, it has a good amount of stock, with eight cories, 5 khulis, 6 rainbows, 6 danios, one tetra, three plecos, and three rasboroas.
    So my question is which tank be best to quarentine and acclimate them to?

    Well, if put in the 55g you wouldn't be quarantining them because its already stocked. If you'd like to quarantine them, which personally I like to, I would set them up in the 10g.

    I agree, QT first in 10g. You don't want to loose the current stock of they're sick.
