introducing a new Blood Parrot to a tank
I plan to add another blood Parrot to my 90 gal. I'm thinking, however, it would be best to let the tank rest for 30 days after recovering from a recent ich episode.
I'm wondering if my existing 2 BP will accept a newbie after they've established their own territory in the tank or will they give it a hard time? Should I think about adding the new guy sooner?
And will a bare bottom QT be okay or should I provide the little guy with a rock cave or something to hide behind? I know how shy they are ... I've had these 2 for 3 weeks and they're just now starting to act like I'm not going to turn them into sushi, so I don't want to stress a new one more than necessary.
As for QT - 2 weeks? 3 weeks?
thanks so much
