Ahh let me clarify that. The Tomini tang came from a online Vendor, I didn't QT it, but they did. The shipping unfortunately didn't work out. I likely wouldn't have had any different luck if it wasn't QTed. The two fish that I have personally QT'ed are both alive and well as stated in my original post.So you have 33% success rate in this one fish alone. That is ax66% loss rate. Just think about that for a minute. My store owners only experienced a 3% loss rate on average. Just saying there might be a better way.
I think the issue people have with QT is not spending enough time/effort doing it properly. The fish I QTed came out of QT looking healthier and fatter than when they went in. Not to mention conditioned to aquarium life and eating well.
My point was it took 6 months to get a fish that I really wanted so I don't want to jeopardize its health by exposing it to unnecessary disease risk.
Edit to Add:
I am curious about the 3% loss rate. Can you elaborate on what they are doing? I imagine typical shipping losses are higher than that.
