Quarintining coral beauty

I am really wanting to put a coral beauty angelfish in my 55 gallon fowlr. But I have heard that they do not ship well and quarantining is a must. Well a don't have a quarantine tank and was wondering that if it will be ok.


55 gallon fowlr soon to be reef

I ordered the coral beauty that is in my 55 reef online and didn't QT him. It is a risk that I wasn't able to do anything about and worked out well. Pretty hardy fish.

If I did set up a quarantine would a tank, heater, and live rock with very frequent water changes

You don't use live rock in QT or hospital tanks. Normally you will use things like PVC pipe elbows for fish to hide in. This will allow you to treat with copper based medicines if necessary. You will do water changes to keep the ammonia levels down.

Anything that is safe for drinkable water...I want to say plastic containers labeled as a 2 are rated for that.
