    Good Morning Reefers: I originally set up a 20 gallon quarantine tank for introducing new fish into my display. It was fine for the pair of clowns and the Bangaii Cardinals I just moved over, but I am ready to adopt my next fish. I have been going back and forth on this for a couple of...

    Hi guys. I'm going to set up a quarantine tank and I was wondering what all is necessary to have in it. I know that there will not be much good biological bacteria in there because of dosing fish, but how long does it need to run till fish can safely be introduced into the tank? Maybe this is a...

    Something I've come across quite a bit when researching various fish species is most people seem to suggest quarantining and treating the fish before adding them to the display. I'm curious how many people actually take this step? If you do quarantine your fish what does the tank look like, how...

    Dear reefers, I have recently bought an bicolour angel and have put it into my tank. At first my tang started bothering him. Two to three days after, everything settled down but I discovered that my tang had a couple of white dots on his body. I knew that it was white spot or...

    I made the mistake of stocking a reef aquarium with fish and not quarantining them. Sadly I introduced a yellow tang that had velvet disease. The disease has over come my other fish and they are beyond salvaging. It's my understanding that inverts wont host this disease in my reef, so I wont...

    My mother in law is trading her palatte tang for three green chromis from another reefer. He only has one chromis, so he's going to go to the lfs and get two more. I told him to make sure to get ones from a healthy tank with clear fins to try to reduce the risk of ich but you know how that goes...

    So with the need to quarantine all new arrivals, I am not sure just how long they should stay in quarantine. Do you keep coral, fish, and inverts in for the same length of time? Or should it differ?
