Even though I do not like any fish to catch a sickness brought in by a new fish, since I have Angel fish, I even get more paranoid of a disease attacking them that was brought in by a new fish.
If you do use a quarantine tank what size do you use? I have a 10 gallon that I got on sale that I am going to set up.
Thanks for any advise on this.
I use a 10 gallon for most freshwater fish QT though I have been guilty of not QT'n the way I should since I trusted my LFS. No more shortcuts though. ;)
