QT a CUC

I want to add some snails or a goby for CUC duties. My QT is a 10g w/ crushed coral substrate. Will scavengers be ok in there?
Also,the substrate is bright white, I added some white PVC. Would black PVC be significantly better?

snails no, fish yes (IMO).

I use black PVC when I have more than one in the tank and one is a bottom dweller (goby,blenny, etc) to try and give the impression of a darker place like hiding in a LR cave. No real science behind it, just a whacky personal theory.

I know some are of the opinion that everything needs to be QT and that`s OK. Better safe than sorry but I`m like the captain. I dont QT inverts but definitely fish.

What's "TY"?

Agree with the others... I don't quarantine inverts, but I do quarantine fish.
