Quarentine

I have a 29 gallon that im thinking of using as a quarentine tank due to moving to a smaller place i may have no room for it. Is it safe to skip the quarentine process and just do freshwater dip?

You can choose this method if it better suits your space limitations, but keep in mind a freshwater dip won't do anything for some ailments like parasites or infections.

I personally have never seen a FW dip do any good. To a fish that is already stressed out it will certainly kill it. QT is the better option.
