your supposed to add like a couple cups of water to his water so he can get used to they;re water and have no shock....its like add a couple cups every 10 min for like a half hour (cant quite quite remeber)....when it comes to dropping him in try this....take the other p's out, put them in the same bucket with the new guy, re-arrange all the decor in the tank, and when you drop them all in its fair game, new scenerio for everyone, no pre-claimed territory's, thus resulting in no ganging up etc...

That is pretty much dead on. You can also reduce the temp to help lessen the aggression. Other than that, good luck.
