This article is awesome! I am a beginner with first tank cycling. Didn't use a quarantine tank and have sick fish on my hands at the same time as cycling. What a mess!!
I was about to post to ask questions how to start a quarantine tank but searched what info the forum would have first----wow! Wish I had found this article 2 months ago! But the thought of quarantine never even entered my head until the sick fish!

I unfortunately wasn't read-up on quarantining, and made the mistake of adding fish without this measure. Sure enough, a group of the fish had something, and I ended up having to treat my whole tank. Never again!

I would still suggest quarantining new fish, even your first ones. Not only is it easier to treat fish in a QT tank (should you have to), but you do not have to worry about parasites and/or virusis getting into your tank making it more difficult to get them out of your substrate, driftwood, decorations or other objects you have in the tankIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
