From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A quarantine tank is a tank that is used to quarantine new fish or other organisms that are later intended to be introduced into another, primary aquarium.[1] Quarantine tanks can also serve as "hospital tanks", where sick or injured fish are taken from the main aquarium and given treatment. Quarantining a fish can help stop the spread of a contagious disease, such as Ichthyophthirius multifiliis.
