Be prepared to lose some of them. I would take all the P's out and rearrange the tank. Then reintroduce them. I still think they will get eaten though despite this but you can try it.

I agree with xenon, That is too much of a size difference when they are small. You could seperate the tank until they get around 4 inches, you would have a much better survival rate.

If you have the means, try and put those p's divided in the tank and wait till they get around 4 inches before you introduce them with the 5inchers. :nod:

Are they true 5 inchers or does that measurement include tail. I If they are true 2 inchers and your 5 inchers turn out to be 4 inches I don't see a problem. Just keep them well feed and slowly take them off feeding live fish. Turn the tank temp down to 77 and make sure to rearrange the tank. Don't let any big p's establish a territory. If they do your little ones will die. Turning your tank down to 77 will also slow down their metabolism and it should take the aggression out. But when they are more closely related in size turn the tank back up to 82 and add some salt and away you go.
