What specie? Generally two weeks is the minimum, but some are a month or even longer. Regardless, I would not introduce them until at least Sunday.

Oh, put them together then, ghosts are communal so when the time is right they'll mate. No need to separate them, even when rearing :)

For the record they are ready to mate after approximately 1 week for males and 2 weeks for females. Again though, let them share a habitat, the interactions are priceless
