Hey all just to let u guys know what ive found to be the best and easiest way to introduce a new fish to ur tank.Once at home climatise fish in sump,once ready release in sump untill nightfall when dt lights go off give ur other fish time to fall asleep in their safe space,then introduce new fish.RESULT next morning everything goes on as normal,less stress on all inmates.thats whats what works fir me:thumbup:

Stunning idea, i am however one of those chops who dont have a quarantine tank. So fishy goes to tank early evening. What i do is feed fish well and when they are all mellow and full , i introduce fish. Sydney? This is Rachel! .... Rachel .....lol

good plan,try keep fish in sump till feeding and fat,also when adding if you do a few fish at a time there seems to be safety and distraction in numbers...midasblenny will wait up to a month before a mass introduction,as you say,usually in the evening(his reef has +/- 50 fish.

Yeah, but that tank has some monsters in it. Can you imagine trying to introduce a new YT, with those huge Salifin, Naso and Pencil-Eye patrolling
