Has you tank been cycled? You might want to focus on doing that before adding more fish.

Oh good, I just wanted to make sure because you said you were getting on Thursday and a tank certainly can't cycle in 2 days

Yeah

Mine took forever, probably about 8 weeks, but they do make products to help speed it along. Or, if you know someone with an established tank, that can help too
