I still haven't quite pinned down what has been killing my fish, but I do know that I cracked my QT the day I bought my fish, and so I didn't do it, just acclimated now I'm down a Flame Angel, Royal gramma, and a Chromis... fingers crossed that the rest survive.

My LFS is extremely repuatable, even QT's fish for me.

Mine qt'd my mandarin for 3 weeks in a separate system to make me more comfortable. he even qt'd the blue tang for me but alas, it didnt work out.

I hope you guys who don't qt have continued success.

And as a side note, my lfs is one of the most reputable, clean and honest within 3 counties wide and still I had an issue. Bad fish can happen to anyone. I;ve never seen abad fish at my lfs ever, not dead ones or anyting. I;ve boght dozens of fish from him over a years time, both fw and sw and only had the problem once. But once was enough for me.
LOL

To say QTing is overrated is a bold statement ,and i wish you luck with your future additions

Just inquiries, not a debate. I see everyone's side and if I hadn't talked to Carey, I wouldn't even have a QT... But thought it couldn't hurt to try...

For the price of a qt it's worth some peace of mind in my opinion. I still kick myself for not doing it earlier, I would have saved half my tank. Including my ORA b&w's which were my very first saltwater fish. I have no one to blame but myself though. Its the whole frame of thought "oh, not me, that couldn't happen to me" mentality. Guess I;m still not over my fish dying on me, even though it's been months....

I feed mine right off so far and they have both eaten. but usually they take a day or two to settle in. i would try to feed anyways, it always makes me feel better when I see them eat right away.

Mine do. they eat everything I put in. I rotate pellets, flakes and frozen foods along with a seaweed clip. i would put a clip in the qt and see of he eats any. seaweed is supposed to be uber good for them.
