Zebra Dartfish QT

Ok so I got my new Zebra Dartfish in them mail. It is looking fine and is acclimating to my 10 gallon QT tank. How long do you guys think I should keep him in there? I have heard 1 month minimum, and 2 weeks minimum. Which would you guys recommend? And he is looking healthy BTW

Congrats! I would personally do about 2 weeks, but doing it longer couldn't hurt. Do you have any pictures?

It was either this or a fire goby, and I do not particularly like them that much. They seem to have a good personality, but I just dont like that antennae...

I am actually pretty proud of myself for even QTing. I knew I would need to QT the Kole Tang, and wanted a little practice hehehe
