There's not really a black and white answer for this.Hiw long do you need to wait before buying more fish after buying fish
Yes so true! For your best success in fish keeping a qt tank should be the first place for new fish. Doesn’t have to be big. Even a 5 gal for new fish for a few weeks would really help. Better to find out the fish is sick in a qt tank than in your main tank. Where everything in it gets sick as well.It depends upon how many quarantine tanks you have set up. You are of course quarantining all new fish purchases for at least several weeks before adding them to an existing tank...right?
If you are simply going into a fish store every 2 or 3 weeks and buying more fish which are then placed directly into your established tank...then you are setting yourself up for a crash course in dealing with diseases, parasites and unwanted hitchhikers. It's just a question of "when?", not "if?".
i like to QT for 3 weeks b/c the ich life cycle lasts 2-3 weeks depending on the temp.How long do you have to qt them
Do you think that the fish I just got will be ok they don’t look like they have ich and they are swimming around well and energetic
Is it ok if my qt tank is bare. Also I should just transfer some filter media over and use some api instant start then qurentine them I have a few decorations I can put in or I can trim a little java moss and put it in
