Wait until it starts doing it's little "twitch" thing...
Yep... My clowns were doing that. What the heck is it all about?
I dont have a QT myself. Lack of space and well I spent a crap load on the main tank so for the moment I'm with out. I'm keeping my eye open for a 10gal tank that i can use down the road for a QT tank.
I have 4 fish in the tank. 2 clowns (tank breed) then later I purchased 1 Royal Grammas and 1 Blue neon goby (tank breed). I made sure to ask how long they have had the fish (all of them were in the same tank at petco), and was informed the clowns were there just over 2 weeks and the other 2 just over 3 weeks at the time I had picked up the clowns. I watched them for a bit see how they were reacting, eating, breating, etc. All looked good. And all are doing great in my tank thus far. QT is something I will be getting just need some time to save up a little extra.
I was told from my LFS
that the hermits ( blue legged and scarlet) along w/ my Black turbo snails didnt need to be acclimated because they were pretty hardy to start out with. I let the bag sit in the tank for about 15mins so what little water was in the bag was at least the same temp at the tank. The proceeded to stick the snails on glass and drop in the hermits. All have cleaning like crazzy. and no losses. Did I just get really lucky and I should be acclimateing them or is that more for the less hardy hermits and snails?
