quarantine/hospital tank


Recommended Posts

I put a tank together about 4 hours ago emergency tank to treat ick

just put water,salt, heater and powerhead

Can I put the fish in or will it die does this tank have to be running and cycle or can I do this as an emergency

cycle is cause by the rock...use water from established tank and acclimate slowly

airstone and plastic cup would be a nice addition too...

in a hospital tank, water changes used to maintain ammonia/nitirite/nitrates. you could use live rock in the tank, but must be able to get rid of it because it may become "infected". hate to say it but an active biowheel from another tank, would be a better substitute for lr in this situation.
