As a matter of fact I do. But this is only in case of a serious sickness. I don't like to place under anymore undo stress. I mean think about it they come from the ocean to the holding tanks bagged and shipped to the wholesaler and then to the LFS. When I get new fish in I do a slow acclimation of 45-60minutes and feed all food soaked in garlic xtreme and double dose on coral vital.

I do think about it, they have been under such tremendous stress that they deserve the ability to settle into captive life in a tank, unoccupied by other fish that see them as a threat, competition, or jujst another fish to put in the proper pecking order. The trauma may already have been so great that the fish will succumb to a parasitic infestation or desease. The tank the fish came from, could have had several fish in it die from parasitic infestation...the day before you picked yours up...yours may not show signs of infestation....but it will eventually. Good luck

All the more reason to QT the fish. Under stressful conditions, fish are more inclined to ailments. Once infested, the new fish can easily pass it to the aquarium and be there for up to a week or slightly longer without you even knowing anout it.

Existing tank members are often stressed by new arrivals and possible aggression and can become infected if health declines at all during this time.

Please reconsider you options....

Cheers
Steve
