I read Paul's post about his method (no quarantine") and I liked it. It sounds logical and it's the way nature works. However, I see that there are way more people who quarantine fish than those who don't. So then his method is not welcomed? And it's not right? What do you think?
My guess is more people DO NOT quarantine, they are just less vocal for fear of the "You must Quarantine police" coming down on them.
I never QT. Itch and other parasites/diseases are likely present in most systems whether you QT or not, same as they are in the wild, and healthy fish can fight off the infections. I agre with PaulB that QT might be causing more stress than good.
Its like humans and MRSA, most of us who work in a hospital are colonized with the superbug, if you check our nostrils/skin for the bug a lot test positive. It does not cause us any trouble as we are generally healthy and not prone to infections that in others cause real trouble...
