Be careful with guppies from petco/petsmart. In my experience they are almost always carrying disease, even if there are no outward signs. I've brought several home only to see them slowly waste away and die in the next couple of weeks, and right now I'm dealing with parasitic worms that I strongly suspect were introduced via the guppies. Don't be like me - quarantine for at least a few weeks.
Meanwhile, the endlers I bought on Aquabid are amazingly resilient.

|kjg1029||yeas id aim for two weeks, and they should be fine since you said your room needs to be warm for your other animals|

Yes, I am definitely going to quarantine the endlers, my main question is if they will be okay in a bin with no heater for a few weeks. It would stay around 76* because of how warm my room is, and they would get daily water changes.
How long do I quarantine? Is 2 weeks long enough?

|kjg1029||i would rather risk the new fish dieing, then all the other ones because you didn't qt, but yeah for a few endlers id say 5 gals would be okay, just make sure you change the water alot.:)|
