I did not quarantine once....was fresh water....was a pleco.
I needed him for an acute algae problem...so I opted to bypass the QT
process. I did not see the Pleco for 1 week after I got him. I finally saw him...COVERED WITH THE WORST CASE OF ICK!!
I had 10-15 fish who also got Ick. One fish lost his tail from fin rot. I lost 4 fish so far (including the pleco), lost 4 snails as they could not take the heat treatment. Moved 4 more bad looking fish into the hospital tank last night with body fungus, rin rot, eye problems.
That is my motto now!
