Question Adf how long should I quarantine

I'm having problems with petsmarts adfs and I am just wondering if I should quarantine them when buying new ones. If so for how long? If they are all together when I buy them would a quarantine even help?

You quarantine to protect whatever is already living in your main display tank from any infections whatever you have bought might be carrying.

2 to 3 weeks should be long enough for any infections to become apparent. If you see anything that might be infectious, treat in the QT until it is resolved and you're sure your frog is no longer sick and infectious.
