Adding the kribensis

Hi All,
I have a 35 G with a male krib and a couple other fish in it, they will be moved to a 55 G shortly. I was looking to add a female krib into the 55 as well. I hear it is a good idea to add the female at about the same time as the male to minimize aggression, so that the male doesn't have time to 'take over' any territory of the tank.
Would introducing them a day or two apart be too long. I'm not sure if I'll be able to add them simultaneously. I plan on having plenty of hiding spots/caves.

I'd introduce the others first so they have a chance to scope out the territory and feel comfortable the add the older, more likely aggressive fish. But each fish is different, he might just welcome the company until he picks a mate.
