My Big Tank is cycled

Its water paremeters are

PH- 7.5
KH - 17
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0 (maybe 2ppm)

So all is well after the 18 day cycling Period, the nitrates rose then fell, and ammonia levels go back to 0ppm with half a day..so bateria is present and working well.

My Two Stunning Orandas are in waiting in a little tank in my LFS(for a month now!) Although i am being charged ?4 a week to keep them reserved..They are worth it (they were ?50 each!!) They are both large red caps.

Should i Bring them both home together? Or just one at a time? What should i feed them and how much? The pet shop was very vague I was told just a sinking pellet once a day? But id like to give them live and frozen veg etc..

I have read that Red Cap Orandas should be limited on blood worm because of the bateria problems it can cause with their wens (their red caps!)

Advice much apriciated!
