I was curious about quarantine tanks used before introducing a new fish to an established tank. What exactly do you do in a quarantine tank? Do you just observe the fish for a few weeks to see if it has any illnesses, or do you feed it medicated food, or what?
Should there be gravel, decorations, and heater in the quarantine tank? How long should a fish stay in the tank?
Also, is a quarantine tank necessary for the first fish you are going to add to a new, cycled tank that doesn't have any fish yet? Thanks!
