well there's no-one really in there to pick on him (except the Platys, the sole Mickey Mouse being the most likely culprit) its more a case of making usre he doesn't start picking on anyone
He is the one that was picked on in the Sunnyside tank isn't he? Nice for him to be able to relax. Yes really hope he plays nice with the other residents for you. Lovely looking fish :)

well he seems to be settling in, the Mickey Mouse Platy hasn't made a beeline for him and Doc is happy exploring around. I'm sure he thinks has a cory though as caught him several times "dancing" with the Pandas at the front glass!!

One thing to note is that the neons & embers are (generally) schooling more tightly than they have off late (they used to originally then started spreading out more loosely), presumably in response to a stranger in the room.

so some good news, not only is everyone still there but no immediate spikes caused by adding Doc in (and yes they were fed after he was added)

Oh yes, I can imagine. You have a few nail biting days ahead of you.

Could be up to 14 days before you see it, but with the temp raised it should be either earlier or not at all. :)
