Do I need to quarantine fish/corals/inverts from one source? Ok so I have a 5 gallon nano soon to be reef, I plan on getting like one clown and MAYBE (but highly unlikely) one other fish along with some inverts like cleaner shrimp and some simple corals like toadstools. I am planning an upgrade very soon (I have everything I need except a heater and some more rock). Anyway, could a clownfish and maybe one other fish with inverts live in a 5 gallon tank for a short period of time? Also, I plan on getting everything at once (the clown, the inverts, maybe coral and maybe the 2nd fish). Since I am getting them all from the same place and all at once, can I just put them all straight into my tank without quarantining? After this batch, I will definitely quarantine, just since is the first batch I don’t think it is necessary. What do you think?
