How to QT fish before adding them to the tank..
Hey everyone. For Christmas I am thinking of doing a tiny aquarium. A 10 gallon cycled, planted tank with pygmy cories, shrimp, and neon tetras, and maybe something else without over stocking it.
I know I'm going to have to spend some time getting it to cycle, I'm planning on doing a fishless one. And you're suppose to add only a few fish at a time right? But the cories need to be in a group of 5 or 6? So put all of them in at the same time? Or just 3 at a time?
Also, my boyfriend added some killer sickness to his tank from local petstores and I don't want to do that with my tank lol So I would like to QT the fish before putting them in. Which would be a lot I suppose... But how would I go about doing that?
What size tank? For how long? Should I forget about QT?
Thank you!! :]
