quarantine tank
 
i had a parasite that came free with some fish that i bought from the fish store (yay), so i set up a quarantine tank, its been about 5 days, added all the meds (the medication said for 2 days but i just left them there)

question is, how do i know when theyre good and free from disease and etc?

thanks![/code]

what kind of parasite? What did it look like? Was there a lot or are you just talking about a single parasite? What kind of fish?

Have you seen any more parasites? What is the setup of the quarantine tank? Lifecycle may be similar to the fish lice a lot of us have always known.
