Good luck bro! Sounds like a nice group of fish! I just hope it already went through a fast cycle and the nitrates don't spike up and kill them pale . Best of luck though! keep us updated!

I figured that you meant fire fish. Wink As for the perculas, they should get blacker as they mature, so in the end, you'll probably have the black color that you want. Smile

+1

1 week is really quick for the nitrogen cycle to take place. I don't know if you've been testing your water parameters; if you haven't, I recommend that you do. And, just watch your fish and shrimp to make sure that they all are looking okay.
