Q - Aquarium and Fish Dictionary
- Quarantine Tank :
- is a bare bones aquarium that is set up for housing new fish, invertebrates or corals for several weeks so we can monitor them for pests, parasites or disease. Using a quarantine tank is highly recommended and can save countless headaches and money. Trying to catch a diseaseed fish in a tank full of live rock is not our idea of fun. Quarantine tanks allow you to not only monitor new arrivals for disease but it also allows the fish to more slowly acclimate to captivity (saltwater species) and we have a chance to bulk them up a little bit with some good foods before we introduce them to the main tank.
