In my case, its a good example of why fish should be QT'd prior to going into a DT. I gave up my usual QT for my son's science fair project (hermit crabs). I get a good deal on a fish and decide i will just put it into my DT and get another QT later. My QT fish never come down with anything. Of course, that fish has MV. About $100 later in dead fish, plus starting a tank over (new sand, rock, etc)...all over a $10 tank. Doing a permanent QT from now on.
