If they share the same water ie: all tanks are on one sump or from the same tank it wont hurt. Just supply them some cover. You do know it's not a good idea to add to many fish at one time. Dont mean to preach It's just that i see some importers will harvest 100 to get 1 that lives

Yeah. They are small fish though, very little bioload. Plus, my quarantine tank will have cycled media from my DT, so no (or a little) cycle to worry about.

I think this is about as patient as I will get. It's so HARD! I just don't want to wait a month to quarantine a gramma after quarantining a pair of clowns for a month. All I have is 3 green chromis in my tank and i need more.

I think I will be good with the gramma and two baby clowns in quarantine. The tank has a 190gph powerhead, with an air stone and hob filter.. so plenty of surface agitation.

Just remember, that if I save even one fish during all my years of future reef and fishkeeping, it is thanks to you.

Seriously.

FYI, I didn't say they couldn't be, cause I'm not experienced. I'm just saying what I would do. If I bought 4 chromis at the same time, yep they would get qt together. Awe nevermind. I can't explain. Besides as I said I'm not experienced in any of this.

Hey Buffy, no worries I appreciate any and all input! I'm only a bit further along than you, not much at all. So i'm not experienced either. We are learning though, right!?

As far as bleach goes, I'm sure I won't be using it again. I'm far too paranoid. I rinsed rinsed rinsed. Then filled it up again and overdosed prime (for the second time). Tomorrow I will empty, rinse, dry, and pack away to let air dry and wait for usage.

Might paint the outside of the bottom glass black if I can find my krylon spray paint.

Nope not at all. I'm just doing overkill. Better safe in my mind than to worry.
