Baby clowns...again, QT ???

A few days ago we picked up 2 more baby clowns to add to the 5 we currently have - 2 x 3.5 inches, 1 x 3 inches and 2 x 1.75 inches. The last time we added a pair of babies (7 months ago) I didn't QT the fish. Since then I've learned the hard way and these 2 little guys are in a 10 gallon.

How long do you usually QT new fish for? At this point both fish seem really healthy. They're fattening up on frozen bloodworms and I'm in the process of weaning them onto the mix of pellets, wafers and veggies that I feed their brethren.

Any advice would be appreciated
