So I was in the city, picked up my son from college and woohoo a new FS to explore. They had itty bitty Panda Cory's,... yes I got one to go with my other 5 and 4 Neon Rosy Barbs. I guess that a week is the appropriate mourning time for a Rosy Barb because it is trying to get into the bag containing his 4 new friends. LOL Now they were not able to tell me what their water PH is and I know mine is very high at 8.4 so I will take lots of time dribbling in water to aclimate them.

Well my sad little Neon Rosy Barb is a happy little Rosy now. It's still trying to figure out how to swim next to everyone all at the same time but I'm sure it will all work out. lol My original one is much redder in colour so easy to pick out of the group. They are travelling as a little pack back and forth and the 2 Rainbows and the Zebra Danio join in at times. My new little Panda Cory was greeted immediately by the littlest of the 3 new Cory's I bought yesterday and off the two went together.
The new little Long finned Leopard Danio has been chased a bit but it is determined to spend time with the big boys and is not deterred by them at all. If they get too aggressive I will have to pick up another little 1.
I'm overstocked now I think, altho many don't count Cory's, it's starting to look like the Eastern Australia Current in Finding Nemo... just needs turtles.
I will step up my water changes now to weekly and rinse the filter pads more often while these newbies settle in.
