I don't currently have one, but I am planning to get one soon, when I stock my next tank. I highly recommend one to anyone with fish, since fish can get sick at any time (which just happened to me).

Just got one, but it still needs to cycle. Am thinking of a second quarantaine tank. I've seen the cutest miniature version of my hexa tank!

I do not have one but am planning on setting one up as a hospital tank. At the time i hape inexpensive and simple fish that haven't been sick and are easily replaced. I know it sound mean but i would try to help the fishi f i could. The quaantine tank just isn't in the budget...yet. what is a good size for a qarantine tank and is it totally necessary.

I have a 10 gallon hospital tank. This was my first tank and it works great, even though I don't have to use it much.

I had a quarantine tank, but I couldn't figure out how to keep it cycled in between adding fish. It was good cause I used it to clear up the ich on my neon tetras, but a couple weeks later when I put an angel in there it died. I know that there is a way to do it, but it just wasn't working for me. Now my tanks are pretty much stocked, but next time I set up a tank I plan on getting another one.

i don't generally find it necessary for me. i kept fish for a long time, years ago... and the one and only time i used a hospital tank was when my dad bought an oscar that was already sick... he was so bad off that i honestly didn't think he'd make it, but he pulled through and became the meanest one he had.

We have one. Some of our tanks are just too big to treat...so we need a smaller one. Less cost on meds.

I am now using my other 29 gallon as a QT... wanted to shut it down, but thought, may as well use it if I need it for sick fish... Not going to add any fish in there so will have to keep an eye on the water perimeters to keep it cycled.

I have a 2 Gallon for a smaller fish quarantine, and a 25-29 gallon as a larger fish quarantine. however, I ended up putting a big 8" Midas Cichlid in it because he was too agressive, not sick.

We Q all fish that come into the fishhouse.
Since most tanks are kept 1-2 species only ( usually a pleco and whatever is the main fish for the tank) we do not run into any problems.

I HIGHLY reccommend that all new fish be quarntined.

I voted no, since I currently don't have ANY fish, and my cycling tank is for just one betta. If/when MTS strikes, I'll create a quarantine setup.

We've always got some empty tanks now that can be setup in a hurry for a Q. tank. We just need to order a few more heaters after I tossed the Tetra heaters in the trash.
