wild fish

i am new to the saltwater fish tank world. I go fishing a lot and was wondering what would happen if i brought a baby wild fish i caught home and put it in the tank? would it harm my tank or any of my fish in the tank?

I wouldn't do it. Most of the time they carry parasites. You would need to quarantine it and I would treat it if you did. You would be taking a huge risk.

Many of the fish at the lfs are wild caught. So u just need to quarantine before u put in ur main tank.
