  1. I have a a shipment of fish coming in later this week and I need advice on the best method of quarantining. I have a dedicated 9 gallon tank I use for quarantine. I'm not sure if it would be appropriate to quarantine 7 platties and 6 Julii corys together for 1-2 weeks in such a small volume of water. If need be I can set up an "emergency" 10 gallon quarantine tank with spare equipment to split them up but it wouldn't be ideal for my living situation & I'm not sure I trust this 10 gallon to hold water. I really don't want to wake up to a blown-out/leaking aquarium. I'm going to use the med trio and feed once lightly on the 3rd day of quarantine. Any suggestions?
  2. Hey there! I’m expecting an order from Twin Cities Guppies this week, and I have a few questions. I’ve had fish in the past, but I am new to buying fish online as well as using a quarantine tank + meds. My biggest question: is there anything I need to do differently when my fish are shipped? My concern is that the fish will have already gone without food for a few days and then a week without food during the med trio- isn’t that too long? When should I feed them? How long can they go without and be okay? Are guppies sensitive to meds at all? What day should I feed them after receiving and acclimating them? Should I hold off on the meds for a few days? thank you!! https://www.aquariumcoop.com/blogs/aquarium/quarantine-tank?_pos=1&_psq=quarantine&_ss=e&_v=1.0 I should add that these are the resources that I’ve been using to get my quarantine tank ready^^
  3. Entry #1 | Entry #2 Because of the prices and overall welfare of the fish in my city I decided to order my first additions from AquaHuna 🙂 I was SO impressed with their communication with me and the adjustments (two ivory mystery snails rather than golden) made for me before shipment. My 6 albino corydoras and 2 mystery snails were shipped Monday(3/28) and arrived TODAY (3/30) 😃 Below is a video of my, way over excitement, introduction of the fish to their quarantine tank 😜 So, the little guys will stay in the tank for 24 hrs to become acclimated to the new water parameters and then I will apply the med trio once, wait two weeks, and then insert them in my 29-gallon. I will put the snails in the tank sooner, but I need to maintain "0" ammonia and nitrites for 24 hours first. I just got in Fritz Zyme from Aquarium Co-Op and applied it to the 29-gallon. My 10 new plants arrive tomorrow, which I am thrilled about! This is all so new and experimental for me but I am currently enjoying the ride (except for maybe the patience part 😆) and my family still loves me despite my new obsession/hobby ☺️ Entry #3 Summary Corydoras & snails arrived today from AquaHuna Acclimation seems to be going well, will quarantine for two weeks 29-gallon still has 0.5 ammonia and 5 nitrite readings 😡 New plants arrive tomorrow Questions I Have What do your mystery snails prefer to eat, and if you blanch foods can you tell me how... If you have any other recommendations for "cycling" my 29-gallon please share. Keep in mind that I am new to the hobby so I do not have other cycled filters or media. UPDATE :: My plants arrived and I have them placed in my 29-gallon now! Below are pictures of the plants and their placement around the ones I already had in my tank. Also, what in blue blazes is happening here!! 😧 All the critters were doing fine and then I applied the med trio around 10:00 AM and come 3:30 PM they scare me half to death by pretending to be dead themselves! I poked them and they frantically swam back to the bottom and acted normal for a few minutes before they sam their way back to the top. I read that they can play "dead" if they are stressed or feel threatened... I know meds can stress fish so am I correct in placing my blame on the meds? Do you think they will be Ok 😥
  4. Hello, Thank you for taking a peek at this. I'm a little confused as to how long new fish need to be in quarantine. I'm pretty sure I've heard Cory say he has them in quarantine at the store for one week and if they look healthy, he puts them in display tanks. I think I've also heard other videos say they should be there for a month. Can someone please clarify? I appreciate your time!
