Do you quarantine saltwater fish?
Quarantining saltwater fish also helps prevent illness that the new fish may have from entering your saltwater fish tank to begin with. Properly treating new fish helps remove any parasites and treat illness that you may not see before adding them to an environment where they need to compete for food.
How do you quarantine new saltwater fish?
- Position your sponge filter in your main aquarium or sump so that it promotes nitrifying bacteria for a minimum of 2 weeks (the longer the better).
- When you are ready to buy new fish, first prepare your quarantine tank.
- Add your new fish to your quarantine tank and then let them rest for a day.
How do you medicate a new fish?
I recommend quarantining new fish for between 2 and 4 weeks. During this time, you should also treat any ailments and parasites either with natural remedies or with copper-based medication. The treatment should last between 14 and 21 days while conditioning your water and doing regular 10 to 15 percent changes.
How do you ship marine fish?
Choose plastic bags designed specifically for transporting fish—they should have flat bottoms when filled and be at least 3 mils thick (and ideally 4 or more mils). Likewise, use fish shipping containers that have sturdy cardboard outer boxes and inner Styrofoam boxes that fit inside perfectly.
