OK, I read the link info and I think I want to set up a QT. I'm sooo new to all of this, alot of it went right over my head.
I have a 140gal. SW
and have invested alot of $$$$$. I have quite alot of livestock in it already and guess I have been very lucky so far. My LFS
said I don't need one. But, I don't want to loose everything.
So I have some questions. But go slow, please.
Is QT just like have two tanks?
Dose it add more stress to have a fish aklimate twice? (once to the QT and then once to the main tank.)
If I don't have anything to quarantine do I just keep an empty tank up and running?
If I put something in the QT do I have to wait until it's out before I put something else in?
Is the importance to deal the health problems, or do you try to dupilcate the main tank for aklimation?
Do you need to adjust lighting or water flow (i.e. power heads) depanding on what is in the QT?
I hope these arn't dumb questions you have answer a million times before .
