Alec Posted November 10, 2021 Share Posted November 10, 2021 I apologize in advance for the long post Previously, I have used a 2.5 gallon aquarium as my quarantine tank. I would prefer to have a 10 gallon for this, but due to size restrictions, this is what I have. Additionally, anytime I have had a fish with disease, they never make it in 2.5 tank. I dose accordingly, but they still die. 1. Does the size of the tank have anything to do with this? Or is it just the disease that overcomes them? I did recently buy a 5.5 gallon tank as I have a spot under a new aquarium to put it. Originally, I was going to use this as my new quarantine tank. I have a muck bucket tub that I have 4 gold dust mollies in that I am trying to breed. I also got a fry from the store I bought them from. The fry is currently living in the tub with the other 4 fish and is doing great. 2. Should I provide a grow out tank or will the fry (and future fry) be okay in the tub)? 3. If I were to provide a grow out tank until they are big enough to sell, which tank should I use? The 2.5 or 5.5? On the contrary, which tank would be best for a quarantine tank? The 2.5 or 5.5? Ideally I would like to have both of these tanks be 10 gallons, but I don't have the room for two 10 gallon tanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
