Well they're in!
The poor things. When we went to the store there was a handful of sand for the cories to snuffle around in and a piece of driftwood. They had MANY types of cories in that tank (pygmy, albino, panda, juli...) And the guy just picked up the driftwood and tossed it aside because a bunch of pygmies were hiding under it. Dozens of cories were forced out of the driftwood, and the guy took a huge net and chased everyone around, it took him nearly 10 minutes to catch all 5. I have a feeling some of those cories are injured, but the ones I got aren't.
I floated the bag they were in in the tank while I was setting up the stuff for acclimation. Neon flared once and then ignored them. I rearanged the tank and took Neon out, acclimated the cories, put them in, put Neon in.
Neon nipped one, but ever since he's just ignored them. They seemed less active at first, but when they de-stressed they started darkening and swimming around a bit more. But I'm a bit worried about oone who is lighter than the others and only moves occasionally and half the time it's to breath. He's probably just more stressed than the rest, at least that's what I'm hoping. )=>
