I most ask this question. I don't quaratine because i don't have the space and i think a quaratine tank should be BIG enough to make the fish feel at home and as comfortable as possible. If i had the space i would setup a 33 gal quaratine tank because i know SOME Lfs's don't. If they quaratined their fish some of us probably couldn't afford them. I myself have lost fish and some because i didn't quaratine and i strongly suggest that you do but how many of you actually quaratine? Be honest, post Yes you do quarantine or No you don't. I don't want to see 75 views and 2 post either...

Less than 12 hours in my tank noticed this fish had a bad case of Brooklynalla 24 hours later the other fish started to show signs of illness.
The seller was kind enough to take it back but my other fish was already affected...Lesson learned..

Honestly, I never have...but with the new build I will most definitely be QT'ing everything...even the kid's when they walk up to look at the tank...lol. Seriously though...I don't want to have to deal with any of that b.s. so I will be doing it properly.

Yeah i use to do the same but not all parasites show up on radar right away.This parasite or whatever burrow itself into or out of the side of my anthias. This was the sec. time buying anthias from this place and this happened but i never bothered to investigate. The fish was looking healthy, swimming and eating well until day two. The fish had ruffled scales. I said no, not again. Day 5 anthias dead, i discoverd a small hole on the side of the fish where the ruffled scales were.





Luckily whatever it was it didn't spread through out my tank this time...
