this wont be a sorority but i would like to know about anything to look out for in my new female PK. long story short, my VT passed from a growth/tumour yesterday and i bought her as a replacement. she'll be going into my 5g divided tank. in the tank already is a DeT orange chocolate male. she'll have a nerite as company on her own side.
what signs should i look out for when i introduce her to the 5g within 2-4 weeks? i know they'll show off each others goods and try to interact but how long should it last until they calm down? my DeT didnt care much at all when the VT male was on the other side of the divider.
ive sanitized the heater used in the brief time i isolated the VT in his final hours. i didnt leave any heater in the 1g QT but temps remained 23.6 and stable due to room temp. when the heater is safe it'll go in the tank and i'll start raising the temp up.
