In this episode I discuss my process for running a saltwater quarantine system. This is solely my choice on how I get my fish ready for my display tank, not an attempt to give instructions on whats right or wrong. Please enjoy this video and share you thoughts and recommendations in the comments below. Thanks for watching!!
Very helpful. Thanks!
is that seachem ph for saltwater?
Do you have to cycle a qt tank like display tanks
How often do you test your copper level? Do you find that you have to dose daily to maintain therapeutic levels? Just curious as I am about to start treating fish in my QT
What’s in your hob filter?? I have a 30 gallon qt setup very similar to your setup except I use a sponge filter and do a 5gallon water change every 3 to 5 days
Great vid bro, simple and to the point! Quick question, You mentioned you do half the dose of the recommended so does that mean for example it says 20 drops per 10 gallons . So do you put 10 on the first day and 10 on the second and then leave it at that for 14 days or would you put 20 and 20 in for a total of 40 for 14 days. Directions seem kind of confusing and hopefully this makes sense lol thanks I advance
Very well done. I am new to all of this and looking for videos on how to do everything right. Your video kept it very simple. Thank you.
Do they need to be cycled? I have a tank I’ve been cycling as a nano tank but ima turn it into a qt after I had a purple tang spread ick though out my display tank
Makes no sense not to. Especially if you already got fish in tank
Does the kit come with everything to measure the dosage?
What’s happening J. I had a question in regards to your quarantine process. After you run copper for a few weeks, how do you go about removing it or do you leave it for the quarantine duration? Thanks

How do you keep your water so clear ?
FWIW pH alert only works in fresh water
I thought the Seachem ph alert only works in freshwater, do you find it works in hypo?
when doing a water change and running copper, how do you keep the copper levels stable? add copper treatment to the new water before its added?
Great video on qt..
1) How is the Cupramine on wrasses in your experience? Your Radiant, Leopard, Yellow Tail, etc? I've read copper is hard on them.
2) Do you treat with copper regardless of signs of ich or only as needed?
3) How often are you doing water changes to reduce ammonia?
I am quarantine my Achilles tang and I am keeping the copper as recommended but the fish is not happy it's eating but not that much
My quarantine is containing
Spong with airpump
No water change at all
So did you think I should make daily water change to keep Achilles happy ?
