Quarantine time.

I've had a fish in my quarantine for a couple of days now and he seems to be doing fine. There are no abnormalities on him, he's eating regularly, swimming normally, everything seems to be fine. Is there any reason why I shouldn't go ahead and put him in my tank?

Thanks.

Tell me what kinda fish you talking about. What else is in the main already? Different cautions for different fish IMO.

In the main right now I have two Clowns (percula or false percula's can't tell.), snowflake eel, and a strawberry gramma. The guy in QT is a Firefish.

As innovator said, 30 minimum.....It's also to see if it comes down with anything that needs to be treated.

I won't call you stupid, but there may be a day when you wish you'd rethought that decision. Hopefully you dodge the bullet.

Quarantine tanks don't have to be expensive (shoot... a rubbermaid tub, heater, and a HOB filter will work) and don't have to be kept running all the time.

And to the original poster... yeah - 30 days minimum or it's a waste of time.

Kurts right and I hope you can dodge the bullit. IMO we have so much money and time in our tanks that we don't have money NOT to have a QT.
