With wisteria and/or pennywort and only 3 fish in a 10g I would not worry about ammonia--provided you have several stems of the plants of course.

As for quaratining fish, it used to be suggested that one week was sufficient, but this is only likely to bring something like ich to light. Three weeks is more reliable to ascertain any other issues.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Ok, so three weeks quarantine, got it. I also plan on feeding them the Jungle anti-parasite medicated food that I have already. I'm still waiting on the hood and the plants, but once I get everything set up I'll post pictures. Thank you, everyone, for your help. It is very much appreciated.
