How long to quarantine wild caught before intorducing

I have a pair of wild caught blue rams I want. I was wondering how long should I quarantine them before putting them in my community

4 weeks minimum and they must be treated for worms and internal/external parasites.

Prazi Pro and Clout, not at the same time.

Are you sure they're WC? It's common for people to simply throw that out there so they can charge additional money.

Jeff Michaels is great I've known him for years now, good pick up. I've bought dozens of WC cichlids from him, plus his selection of driftwood is amazing and cheap! Good luck.

You should find out if they've been treated yet, as there is reason to do this again.

If they've been treated already then just QT 2-3 weeks as normal.
