Quarantine?????HELP!!!!!

I am going to get 6 harlequin rasboras, to go with my male betta in a heated, filtered, and planted 10 gallon tank. how do I quarantine them? I only have 3 1.5 gallon tanks I could use to quarantine them. Can I put 2 rasboras in each 1.5 gal tank? or all of them in one? Or should I do something else??

They like to be in shoals, but if you keep the water nice, and keep their tanks close so they can see each other, then you can probably get away with 2 in each 1.5gal for the week long quarantine.

Why not quaritine the Rasboras in the 10 gallon while the betta hangs out in one of the 1.5 gallon tanks?

You can stick them in a storage bin. They work well for very cheap tanks

Would I need to quarantine ghost shrimp? Also how do you tell the dangerous one from the actual ghost shrimp?
