Petco is the only place here in town that sells saltwater fish and some coral. I can tell that most of their tangs and some of the other fish have ich.
If I want to buy coral or rock from them, would I be at risk exposing my tank to ich?
And if I want to buy fish from them, how exactly do I make sure I get rid of all the ich that might be on the fish? Should I set up a seperate tank with a crude filter system, and just run my new fish in it for a week or so and dose copper sulfate to kill the ich? Would the copper from the quarantine tank have a good chance of getting in the display tank and killing any inverts?
I'm trying to figure out a way I can safely buy local, otherwise I'm going to drive to houston or just place a big order online with AQUARIUMS, FIJI LIVE ROCK, REEF SYSTEMS, POND KITS AND MORE
