I agree, they might not make it through the cycle. What are you water parameters? How do you acclimate them? Don't fall into the LFS
's advice. I have found this is a good place, the folks here are honest and not out to make money. Think of the LFS
selling you fish, to cycle your tank, the fish die and the LFS
gets to sell you more. What a profit. Don't worry, just take them back to the LFS
and you can do the fishless cycle, like the others said. Please keep us updated.
