    2 new 2” clown loaches & 2 tetras in planted quarantine

    2 week old 60 gallon aquarium 2 clown loaches, 4 tetras

    Both aquariums have 0 ammonia, main tank has less nitrite than 0.25 ppm
    I have bacteria supplements and if I added them to the main tank them I could add the media/water and plants from quarantine.

    The new loaches are very scared, don’t want to eat much, I’ve had them for 4 days.

    -Would they be less scared it I just moved them to main tank with the other 2?

    one of them looks like he is breathing heavily and has slightly inflamed looking gills but isn’t gasping

    In the main tank (2 loaches) one of them is suddenly aggressive to the other & has been the past few days

    -would he just be the more dominant and try to immediately school or would he be even more aggressive?
