New snail- quarantine?


Recommended Posts

They can host a few of the parasites and other diseases. So technically I think the advice would be to yes, always quarantine. But in all honesty I don't think most people do, as transmission from snail to fish is uncommon. Technically I would guess an ich cyst could hang out in the shell. If you have a quarantine tank, there's no harm in sticking the snail in there for at least as long as it takes for the ich life cycle to break.
