Our store has a mandatory settling period of a few days to a week depending.
I think what Jaysee is saying is: If you are taking the Oscar back, and NO ONE is currently in the big tank (which you intend for Angels some day) put the BGK into the big tank... where ever he is going to end up. Make it so that he is alone and by default is in QT anyway. Make sense?
I wasn't planning on getting the angels right away. I apologize for the confusion. I really don't want to put him in the 75 because I spent a long time getting that tank up and now that it's time to start stocking, I am petrified of introducing disease into the tank. I really don't want to have to start all over due to something silly like ich. Not to mention, it will be easier to target feed the BGK in the smaller tank due to their size.
I would leave him at the shop for a week but they don't keep them in the shop for that long, so unfortunately, it's really not an option. /:
