I know, I know. You're totally right. I am just dying to see my new guys swimming with "the pack."
Actually, this is the first time I've quarantined new fish (thanks to all the great advice I've received here!). I guess I've just been really lucky up until now to get healthy fish (knock on wood). Also, this is my first community tank since I was a kid and these are really the first fish I've tried to add since I started it up, earlier this year. I guess I'm just extra excited!
In the past I always had goldfish, and when you have only 2 or 3 fish in your tank and they live a really long time, you don't have much reason to quarantine new ones!
Ugh - patience...
