:happydance I introduced my newbies into the main tank yesterday :happydance

So far, so good.

Pip was somewhat :yikes when he saw Piggy for the first time - well he is bitesized!

Piggy, Hector & Pepper seem to be firm friends already. Pip is a little more segregated for now - he's much smaller than the others, so I think he just needs some time to find his fins. I'm keeping a close eye on him - I was concerned he would struggle with the output of the 2 FX6 filters, but he's found a little quiet spot to chill in. Hopefully in a couple of days he'll join in with the others more. 

I've witnessed them all do a full lap and swim at all levels, so hopefully the depth isn't issue for them (2ft).

And Piggy is more active than he's been in months - I'm so happy he's got some friends again.

Oh and I weighed them before adding them in...

Hector (tiger oranda) - 137g, Pepper (calico oranda) - 99g & Pip (kirin oranda) - 29g. Piggy was 371g back in July. I was going to reweigh him, but he's a clever little so-and-so and can outmaneuver me in this tank!

Here are a couple more pics - I'll have to get a full tank shot later.

Follow the leader
