Well, for what it's worth, I've been very fortunate with my first tank as the only thing I've really had to worry about in the past two months are the snails and some minor aggression between new fish.
Otherwise, I've had no sick fish, which is a huge relief since I don't have a QT tank...
If I have been helpful, polite, or appreciated in any way, please consider adding to my reputation and a brief description of how I was able to be of service. Thanks! --Coyote
