Condition Protocol


These are conditioned fish and not quarantined. They will have a head start in your quarantine tank as some of the initial work has been done by us. Customers must follow with their own quarantine protocol. Our goal is to carry quarantined livestock but there are many clients and hobbyist that want to quarantine their own fish or maybe they don’t quarantine at all so we have a cheaper option for them to buy livestock.

Procedure For Conditioned Fish

  • Fish get a freshwater bath followed by prazipro bath for 1 hr.
  • After that we move them to sterile holding tanks.
  • In sterile tanks, we administer Prazipro and Metronidazole to get rid of internal parasites. Doses are normally double the recommendations.
  • After 24 hours of being treated fish are ready to ship., we like to observe them in sterile tanks at least for 1 week. After 1 week in sterile tanks, if they don't sell, we move them to copper tanks and get them fully quarantined.
