Troy328 Posted January 24, 2022 Share Posted January 24, 2022 I plan on picking up some Cherry Barbs today! I have their quarantine tank all set up (10 gallon quarantine for a 20 gallon display), and I also purchased the med trio from aquarium co-op. I am very excited to get these little guys, but I wanted some advice first because I have never actually used the med trio before! I am getting the Cherry Barbs from a reputable fish store, but they also have a massive selection of fish, and things are constantly changing in the tanks, so I'm honestly not too trusting of what they will have been exposed to prior to me picking them up, which is why I want to quarantine. That being said, I'm not too sure how long I should quarantine the fish for and if/when I should start them on the med trio. How long do you guys usually quarantine your fish for? For those of you that have used the med trio, did you put the meds in right away, or did you wait a little while? And if you decided to wait, did you wait because you were looking for symptoms to appear or did you wait because you wanted to give the fish time to acclimate first? And did you dose the meds one at a time or all at once? I would like to know what method people have found the most success with! I know Cherry Barbs are known to be pretty hardy, so I imagine they could take all three medicines at the same time and handle it pretty well, but I'd like to hear more from people who have actually gone through it. I am ashamed to admit I have not been the best with quarantining fish in the past, but I want to try and do everything right this time. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks.
