YES! I bought a fish from a place once that claimed they quarantined for a new 20 gallon for my son. It was his first fish in the NEW tank. It got ich. I learned a second lesson as I knew to quarantine, never believe other people quarantine. Maybe they do, but for how long? You just don't know for sure.

How long should I quarantine the fish and inverts for? And 3 saltwater fish in a 15 gallon tank will it be enough space. Also corals don't have to be quarantined right? I never quarantined my fish that's why I'm asking.

I dip my corals with an iodine coral dip. Fresh water dips can work as well. No quarantine necessary.

Don't you already have a saltwater tank up and running with corals?

Oh OK. You take care of it though right? Here is an article all about quarantining fish.
