Disinfecting QT

  1. jhigg008 Well Known Member Member

    I just lost an angelfish in my QT. Still not sure what was wrong. It was probably a bacterial infection or a parasite. Do I need to get rid of my filter? Can parasites and other types of bacteria (other than BB) live in the filter and wait for a new fish to come through the QT tank on the way to the main tank???


    I used metroplex to treat the angel, and allegedly it does not impact the BB as much as some other meds, so I would love to be able to save the filter if possible since it is already cycled.

    Thanks!:;hi1
