So today is day 27, the end of round five of prazi and, if all goes smoothly, I'm planning to introduce my shubunkin, Cosette (who I have a thread about here) into the main tank this coming Friday (QT day 33). I'm a little nervous that my existing fish, Kaji, will bully her since he hasn't lived with other fish since I got him as a tiny 1/2" fish from the fair almost 2 years ago and is also much bigger than her (about 7" sl to her 4" and much more rotund). So, here's what I plan to do based on what I've read from other threads and I was wondering if anyone has anything to add: -mix some of the MT water into the the QT with every daily WC. The QT is 20 gal and I did a 16gal (80%) WC today and added 2gal from Kaji's tank. I was thinking of increasing by 2 gallons or 10% every day (i.e. 4,6, 8 until Friday). -right before adding Cosette, feed Kaji so he will be less aggressive -right before adding Cosette, do a large WC in the MT -right before adding Cosette, rearrange the decor in tank so Kaji will be less territorial Since when I got Cosette she was severely underweight, I've been feeding her 6 small meals a day, whereas I usually feed Kaji 3 larger meals a day. Should I start adjusting Cosette to the three meals a day schedule so she'll be ready for it when she goes into the main tank? I'm probably over-worried, but I want to maximize the chance that they'll get along, especially because I'm going away for two weeks the first week of August so only have 2 weeks to make sure they're okay before I leave them in my boyfriend's care.
