Quarantine Tank Question
I just finished reading the article on quarantine, but there's one part which I'm looking for a little clarification on:
"Okay, we quarantined the fish and it's time to put it in the main tank. I do another acclimation to the display tank as described above, and put the fish in a clear plastic container in the main tank. This allows the ?old? fish to work out their aggression for their new tank mate without actually being able to harm him. I leave the new fish in the container for 2 days to a week depending on how the other fish react."
What kind of plastic container are we talking about, and how big is it? Is a gallon zip-lock bag too small? It seems to me that putting the fish in a tiny container in a big tank would stress it out if you leave him in there for a week.
Fish are friends, not food.
