Hah. Ya I know the feeling, have had that happen

What qt procedure are you doing?
Nothing too crazy:

I have a 40 breeder & a 20 gallon QT with show tank water in it rolling all the time.

Fish stay in there for observation for a few weeks to get them eating and used to my water.

If I see something then I treat for whatever it is, mainly copper power, chloroquine phosphate and prozipro. (I follow directions on the bottle)

Once full treatment is finished I observe for a week or two then add them to a holding tank for more observation that is connected to the system.

Once they are eating well and used to the system water I add them to the show at night and wish them the best of luck. :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:

There are better and more detailed QT processes but that is what works for me.

presumably that 20 and 40 are isolated from rest of systems while doing qt duty? Else there no real quarantine…

Thanks Skyler!! The system loves your phyto and pods!!

Any fish friends on this forum are more than welcome to come visit. Love talking reefs with the fish buddies.

It’s a work in progress but it’s getting better each month! :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes:
