There are a number of simple, yet important, measures you should take when introducing new to your tank.

To avoid shock to your new fish; float the bag in which it came for 15 minutes, undo the top of bag and add ½ cup of water from the tank, repeat this every 5 minutes 3 three times. It is important to monitor for signs of distress in the new fish, if the fish show any negative symptoms such as gasping for air, release them into the tank immediately.
