Quarantine Tank Medicines


Recommended Posts

I have a 2.5 gallon tank that I use for a quarantine tank. I would like to use a bigger tank, but I just don't have the room right now. Should I automatically use medications to treat my fish? I have Maricyn and ParaClense. I'm not really wanting to use these because the dosages are for a 10 gallon and I don't want to overdose. Any suggestions for other general purpose medicines? Or should I just let the fish be in the tank for a few weeks without medication?

Okay. The treatments of those are 5 days. After the 5 days would the fish be considered safe to be introduced into my main tank. If of course they have no visible signs of infection?


Unless you wanted to do Ich-X afterwards (I think its a 3 day treatment).   Pretty new myself so Im sure you'll get better advice.
