edit: you don't wanna end up like whats happening to me I bought this beautiful blue halfmoon doubletail blue butterfly and he was perfect flared at me from the start and I didn't quarentine him I just added him into my 10g with a divider in the middle he got my halfmoon female sick and himself sick so I would just be sure
always my parents wont let me buy fish online and most local pet stores other then petco petsmart their prices are crazy and their choices are small and mostly saltwater so I'm forced to buy from petsmart i refuse to buy from petco anymore because I just cant handle the fact they are like Walmart for animals. But I always have kanaplex salt and tetra lifeguard to helpThat situation sounds very specific, I’m guessing you’ve had experience with buying sick fish huh .
