I wouldnt say entirely. But the bigger the better. If you put then in at the same time you may not have an issue but then again......:nhl_checking:

Do you really trust your LFS not to put the fish in a QT? I guess if you are buying them both from the same store than that is one thing. Any other fish in this tank already?

Yes I have a butterfly, 2 clowns, goby, firefish, scopas tank (? spelling) and a fox face. Note sure what you mean about trusting my LFS to have them in QT? These fish are from private owners and seperate people.

He is worried about the fact that it sounds that you are not QTing the fish. Its like playing russian roulette where the next fish is the loaded cylinder or not. CLICK=nothing bad happens
BANG=ich or other parasite and death for all fish involved
If you are QTing them then the angel you put in yesterday has a 4-6 week advantage on the new one probably not a good thing.

By the way I like russian roulette also :no: but I sill dont have a qt set up. Only thing that got ich was a powder brown and he would get it every week and by the end of the week it would be gone until he was:(

Yea after the second time of the powder brown was blown out with ich I caught him and put him in a hospital tank that shoulda been used as a QT in the first place:wacko: When he died I took it down for a better option and got all the stuff and never set it up lol .

I just had my powder brown die of ick (i believe) but I loved that fish. Why do they get ick? Anyway to stop it?

I have a flame angel and a coral beauty together in a 55 gallon. The trick is too get a plastic see through tupperware so they can see eachother and wait a day then release one to play.

Thats more or less what I was getting at. I haven't used a QT up until this point myself but, have a tank that I have been wanting to set up for future additions.
