Just wanting to know if every coral I purchase should be quarantined first or can I put them straight in the tank?
And if it's recommended to quarantine, what's worst case scenario if I put the corals straight in the tank?
Not many people quarantine corals just due to the lighting required. However you can if you want but I never have. I just give them all a nice dip in a coral dip product and have never had a pest problem. Some coral pests you can get from not dipping them are nudibranchs, acro eating flatworms, red bugs, etc
