I'm getting 16 guppies from a friend and need a place to put it please help me.
 
I am getting 16 guppies from a friend and the tank is cycled but I am QTing a female betta so do I move her? into one of thoses mesh breeders?

Quarantining a fish means keeping from being exposed to other fish. Putting the betta in the mesh breeder will still allow the transfer of possible bacteria and parasites.

What are you quarantining her for?

She is going into my community tank so I need to make sure she dosn't need any treatment and they need it to so I put her in my 1.5 I know way to small but I am about to do a 100% water change so.

1.5 is fine if you do the water changes, don't stress about that. Especially since she is going into a bigger tank eventually.

Ya just I need to make sure the gouppies are safe for her because she is a rescue and so uneiqu and tons or fun even in the small tank.
