Do I have to Quarantine?

Hey everyone! As some of you might know, I've been planning for a sorority ;) Well I already have one of the girls in my divided 10 Gallon tank, Lyra, who has went from being pink, to almost totally gold, with a blue tail o.O The 10 gallon tank is currently cycling, although I think a bit slow since I had to take out a bunch of the water. Too much ammonia added - -"

Anyway I think I'm going to go and pick up about 6 or 7 girls on Monday or Tuesday for the Sorority, and I was just wondering it QT them was necessary? I want to do whatever is best for the girls, but I was just wondering since I'm VERY eager to put them into the tank lol. Also is 8 too much for a 10 gallon? I read that overstocking is better so it spreads out the aggression. I think I'm gonna go with 7-8.

Any feedback would be great! Thanks!

I had 5 girls in a 10 gallon sorority which seemed to be perfect, with plently of room for everyone. 8 May be a few too many. But I have never quarantined, and never had a problem, I know it's recommended but that's just my experience. Good luck with your sorority! They are quite fun :)

I had 7 girls in a 10 gal once and it was pretty tight. The girls were also getting pretty nippy with each other, I guessbecause they didn't have enough space. I'd personally stick to 5.
