At least 6, the thing with treating by hypo for fish its pretty safe but unsafe for many micro-organisms floating around. But with your cuc still in there and being unsure i wouldnt do it either, but there hs to be something that will help.

Thanks.

Sorry Carey, don't want to hog your thread.

Would putting them in QT to play it safe cause them alot more stress and be worse for them?

I was toying with the idea of putting them in the 55g but then they might spread whatever they have to that tank. That leaves me with 10g tanks. The goby and blenny would be ok in there but the yellow tang probably wouldnt. I also don't even know what they have so I can't treat them. :-(

Toying with the idea of picking up yet another tank, maybe a 20 for the qt. BUT when I buy new fish i was thinking the 55g then.

Oh, I'm so confused, I don't know if I'm coming or going.

Happy note, the candy cane goby was out and about in the 125g, he looks good too. The tang is doing nothing but eating while the goby is just chilling.

I havent spotted the blenny or the royal gramma lately though,....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

You can't put the tank in a 10 for QT time only? They have to have bigger for that? I was only gone use a 10 for all my qt's.

I was thinking if you had enough tanks, to QT them all separate and just watch, not treat so you can see if they show any thing.

Didn't know how many you were still watching LOL. I was thinking fish in one and inverts in another.

and I misspelled, should have been tang not tank in the beginning. So can you put a tang in a 10gal for QT (like when you first buy them) or do you have to have a bigger QT size for them?

Im not sure on the tangs and other large fish. Id think such a small tank for a few weeks wouldn't be the best situation.

Anyone wanna share where and how they qt new fish?

That's my take on it. I'm not big on QTing. I figure the whole smaller tank (in most cases) is stressful, then having to net them can't be good either....
When you purchase a fish, hopefully your LFS will hold them for you for a week or two. Also gives you time to make sure they'll eat while you're there. For those who buy fish strictly online, QT may be the best.

Of course, stress can bring on diseases they have like ich, then you can treat them and eliminate it before infecting the whole tank.
