New fish from different sources

6 posts in this topic

Out of interest, if I were to buy some new fish from two different places, could I QT them together or would they need to be kept separate?

**I haven't bought any yet, but am planning on doing so in the next week or two. I just want to make sure I get it right**

Oh really? Cool. I really expected you to say to keep them separate. 

How soon after getting them should I start  raising the salt level & how long should they be kept at that level before starting Prazi (Fluke Solve in my case)?

Not sure if you saw my question above...

Hoping to go shopping this week. There are a couple of places I want to visit & I doubt a single place will have all of what I’m looking for - hence the query about QT from different sources. 

Pretty excited!

I’m just doing a WC before adding in my sand & plants. Piggy will go back in tomorrow. Woop!!

I only use salt when I have to. If it was me I would do a Prazi round see how they are doing after that. If you see more issues then I would use salt. Thats just me. :) 

A good Prazi round should kill mostly everything unless your seeing Ich :o
