How long to quarantine?

I got a couple of new boys a week ago and I've been keeping them in quarantine since they seemed a little under the weather when I got them. A week of clean water and good food has done wonders but I don't want to add them in with other fish too soon. How long should I wait?

Two or three weeks is a good quarantine period, that way you've given time for most possible diseases to show up if they have any. If they seem healthy after that they should be good to go ^^
Thanks, that's what I was thinking.:)
I got a new boy yesterday and I plan on quarantining him for two weeks. :) Other species of fish I quarantine for a full 30 days though.
I quarantine all fish for at least a month - one of a few things in the hobby I take seriously.
