Moving Fish

Hey everyone,

I have a Blue Tang I'm wanting to move from one tank to another. Is QT needed?

I've learnt alot this past year and have decided to move my Blue Tang from my 75 to my 100, it'll appreciate it more.

Im a little scared though, it eats anything.. I dont wanna risk my $180 cleaner shrimp 8O

Do i need QT or should it be okay. Both tanks have been running for yonks..!

Cheers!

Yeah thats what I'm thinking..a very healthy fish, no QT.. $360 worth of shrimp for lunch.. or maybe because its never seen them before he may take advantage of their services..Im contemplating..

Advisors what shall I do..? QT or not..?

WOW, I have 1 cleaner, 1 pistol, 1 peppermint, and 2 sexxys. I probably paid under 50 for all of them. You should try ordering online, that is WAY to much for these animals.

I`m not an advisor bot I say you should not have to acclimate it because you know he`s healthy and not carrying ich. QT is because you dont really dont know what the fish has. He will be OK in the other tank with the shrimp. I know you say he eats anything but he`s a herbivore and I think they will be OK.
