My question is during the quarantine process do I "pre treat" fish with a treatment before adding the to the dt or is it just for observation?
Thanks in advance
I tend to use a proactive method and treat new, wild caught specimens for external and internal parasites upon arrival. I then will wait up to 4 weeks to see if any bacterial or fungal situations occur before either treating accordingly or placing the fish in my DT.
Thank raised specimens that have not been exposed to wild fish can take a less drastic approach and should just be watched for a few weeks for any signs of disease or stress.
Hope this helps
