Lightbulb Teavana sugar jars make good QT tanks!

Not in emergency because not an emergency, just demonstrating QT tanks!

Both my boys are in QT for a bit, one is fin biting the other is finrot due to biting. Both sadly was caused by lack of clean water due to a tough depression. (why I haven't posted in a while).

Each jar gets a 100% clean everyday (just started yesterday) until I see healthy growth. Then my boys will go back into their tanks.

Those are a great idea. :) Are you medicating them or just doing the 100% water changes everyday until they heal?

They are both just getting water changes at the moment, if Calli's tail doesn't heal in a week it'll be a little AQ salt with more water changes... If that doesn't work then meds.... But let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Why not just treat them in their tanks? It seems that fin nipping would get worse in a tiny jar (fewer distractions), water quality would deteriorate faster, and they won't have heat. I'd think they would heal faster in the better environment provided by their tanks.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

Small tanks = smaller doses of meds. No point wasting a whole bottle of meds in a big tank. As long as the fish are warm, clean and have the appropriate meds, they will heal.
Those jars look like real handy qt tanks, would be pretty ideal jars for juvies too!

Trilobite hit the nail on the head! Also my house is hot, I live on Southern California. With the jars sitting on a towel their temp is staying at 79 even at 1 am.

Trilobite, they would be good for juvies!

Calli (finrot boy) made his first bubble nest in this jar XD
