    QT - Why it sometimes fails?

    I would like to hear from people who 'Quarantine' their fish - not from those who do not use this method. This is not designed to determine what percent of people use QT methods - but rather those who do - what percentage have had a failure.... Lets discuss the reasons why it is 'great' -...

    Ich and new fish

    I am upgrading to a much larger tank and have around 6 new large fish coming. Harlequin tang and similar sizes. I never added new fish to my old tank after initial stocking, since I’m more of a coral guy, and the old tank was disease free. My LFS has quarantined the my new fish fish in a reef...
