Could I use my Red Cherry Shrimp Tank as my Quarantine Tank?

    I was thinking of getting a QT but then again I'm about to set up a 10 gallon shrimp tank. Would putting sick fish in this tank jeopardize the health of my shrimp or would it help the fish? Let me know. Thanks.

    If the fish were sick & you had to treat them, some meds you can't use with shrimp or snails in the tank as it'll kill them

    Fully agreeing with the above, I would think that some quarantined fish might find shrimp just the thing to return their appetite and vigour Absent the vigour, it always works for me. Best to you, rick

    As stated many meds for fish are not invert safe. So this would not be ideal.
