I have to disagree with this info. If any fish needs to be QT
, the blue tang is the one. It is very suseptable to parasitic infestation and can often times bring home ick from the LFS
. This is just a fish that does not have a good acclimation/survivalbility record when first introduced. I do not think it matters if it is in the main or QT
, a large number do not survive. QT
is still the best option. It is not worth risking the health of the entire tank for the benefit of one fish. FW
dips, as suggested, really do nothing of benefit for the fish. It is very stressful on the fish and with the short contact time, does not kill parasites. I fear the info provided in the link above is a bit out-dated.
