Leave them in there for two weeks. You're not quarantining them for there protection. You are quarentining them for the protection of your other fish.

That's easy to assume considering various diseases will remain undetected. I'd go with the two weeks rather than earlier or you might get into lots of problems soon.

Not to put to fine a point on it but that is a very foolish rookie assumption. There are TONS of diseases which can take several weeks to show up.

As far` as running out of algae- just throw some algae wafers in there.
