My point was, don't run a tank that depends on healthy fish fighting off ich, etc (disease management) and then decide to quarantine (meaning treat, not just observe) others.I guess really up to the person. QT is safer in my opinion from my velvet outbreak so I always air on the side of caution. Up to the reefer I guess
Don't be afraid, saltwater is way too much fun. Fowlr is really no harder than fresh water.If I abandon the idea of keeping a saltwater FOWLR tank (because of all the hassle of everything) and go to keeping a freshwater aquarium, do I need to worry about quarantining freshwater fish just like saltwater fish?
Go ahead and get a qt tank. Do exactly as you had planned. It will give you piece of mind. I don't want you to give up on your dream. There is nothing wrong with your original plan. We were just trying to make it easier for you.Or what about if just make my 10 gallon saltwater tank just have invertebrates and no fish? Invertebrates don't develop Ich or diseases, right?
