Quarantining is one of our specialities!
We have a standard 30 day quarantining procedure on all our fish.
We don't take the responsibility for the care our live animals lightly! We have made significant investments into infrastructure and staff to assure that we have that absolute best fish or coral available to introduce into your aquarium. After arriving in our facilities, all fish must undergo a 30 day quarantining process before they will enter our sales systems. The fish are thoroughly examined for any known health problems with that species, we look for any signs of disease, and even take scrapes that our examined under microscope by our biologists.
Upon arrival at our facility, all newly acquired fish receive a series of dips and baths to reduce their initial parasite loads. Once added to their designated quarantine system, the fish receive their first of three rounds of Praziquantel. Copper is raised to therapeutic level and maintained there for a minimum of 30 days. Daily testing with laboratory grade equipment ensures that a consistent level of copper is maintained. While in quarantine, the fish are conditioned to accept readily available frozen food items. We will not sell any livestock that we know or suspect to be unhealthy and assure a healthy eating fish that you will enjoy in your home aquarium.
Our coral and invertebrates are maintained in fishless systems to reduce the possibility of parasite transmission. We do not put them through an official QT.
