What would YOU do? Keep the Henis together or separate

To recap, I had 2 Henis in my QT, one big and one small. The small one either came with a damaged dorsal fin or was beaten up by the big one, not sure which. I ddi see the big one harrassing the small one in the QT. To help out the small one, I moved him into the main where after 3 days he died.

The big one is doing fine in the QT. I'd still ike a pair of these though.

So my dilemma and questions to ya'll:. If I get another one, would you place him in the QT with the big one or move the big one into the main and let the new one acclimate on its own in the QT.

Or should I just forget about pairing these up and just keep one.

Thx

Spin

I`d move the big one to the main and QT the new one. I`d rather take my chances in the big tank than both in the QT.

Thanks for the reply. At least someone out there has a minute to spare and give some advice.

Today, I moved the big one into the main and QT'd the new one.

I think the big one may be the problem. After placed into the main, he and my YT were fast friends swimming together. But after a couple hours, the Heni now chases the YT away when he tries to get near him.

We'll see how it goes...
