- 5 Cichlids
- 1 Guorami
- 1 giant tetra
Do you happen to have lots of lava rock in the tank?
I'm still new so my advice may not be on par, but I put lava rock as decor throughout my tanks so there can always be extra bio-filtration in the tank, at least thats what I assume it would end up doing.
Either way from my little knowledge, it would seem that if the shipping is only a week, the tank should be fine if it's established if you do like a 20% every 2 days or something along those lines.
But again, I'm not experienced, this would just be my thoughts if it happened to me.
