How Long

Ok tank has been running for two months. This last month with a clean up crew. I went to Petco and bought two Perc. Clowns. They have been in quarantine for a week now. They are eating well, and happy. I do daily water changes, started at 1.016 and now its at 1.020. How long should I keep them in quarantine before adding them to the DT.

What is the salinity of your DT? What are you quarantining the fish with? If you are keeping them in the QT for medicine, you should qt for 6 weeks.

DT salinity is 1.024, I am only QT because I have read that all saltwater fish need to be QT'ed before added to the display tank. My QT is a 10 gallon, with a hob that just has a sponge in it that was seeded for a week in the DT, It also has a heater keeping it at 78 deg like the DT.

No medications just doing it because i read that it should be done with all fish.

In QT you watch for issues with the fish, or if they come up with anything out of the ordinary. QT the fish if it has any problems for 6 weeks, using the proper medications. But, if the fish do not have any issues, I'd leave em for 2-3weeks.
