Still gathering data on quarantining. I'd like to know if you quarantine new fish and for how long.
This is a multiple choice poll.
If you choose yes, please also select one of the bottom 2 options indicating why you do.
Feel free to discuss below. :)
For me, my answer would be -
No, I don't but have had at least one disease outbreak w/addition of new fish.
It was ich, and it was most likely from a store that is not my usual LFS, but it was an outbreak nonetheless. Of course I can't be sure as the new additions weren't those that were affected by the ich.
(Is that usual, or is there a chance the ich was brought on by stress?)
I just got a 10 gallon kit setup with heater and all at Petco for $34. Pretty darn cheap, and I can use it for a fry tank in the future too.
