I'll be honest. I only quarantine tanks that I buy from other fish owners. If you buy them from pet stores you don't really need to quarantine. Look for the plants to get wilty, but really you're just trying to wait out any sickness that might be on the plant that could infect your fish. When I get new plants I put them in my hospital tank for a week with a shrimp before adding them to a tank. If the shrimp is fine, awesome, plants are safe.

I just got a moss ball from copperarabian. She included it with the 2.5 gallon tank I bought from her. Right now it's in a little bag in some water, along with a red lotus tiger lily bulb. I have no idea how to take care of either one!

I just have a low-stocked community tank. I want to try to add a betta to the community tank after I have the 2.5 gallon set up as a quarantine then backup tank in case he doesn't work in the community tank.

So if I do not have shrimp to use in a QT, what should I do before putting the moss ball in? I don't want it to die before I get a chance to add it.
