My 53gal is done cycling and I added my pair of false percs on friday. I have 3 more small fish to move from my 30gal. How soon can I move them in? I don't mean to rush anything but maintaining 2 saltwater tanks is a bit of a pain for me right now. Thanks.

By the way, I'm not just throwing them in the new tank, I'm slowly acclimatizing them.

One method is to add a fish, wait a week, test the water, if no rise, add another fish and start the cycle again.

if the fish your adding are small (1.5 in) you may be able to get away with adding two at a time. JMO

I think rule of thumb is 1 a week. Smaller ones may count as 2.
