We know the importance of keeping disease out of the aquarium, which is why we offer quarantine service if introducing new fish into your aquarium. It’s a longer process and adds a premium to the cost of the fish, however the reward is worth it. Mitigating the risk of the introduction of diseases such as cryptocaryons irritans (marine ich) shown in the photo, marine velvet, flukes, or bacterial infections is well worth the effort since most of these diseases cannot be treated without removal of the infected fish. In fact to properly rid the aquarium of such disease require removal of all the fish from the display aquarium for a minimum of 30 days, a tedious and stressful ordeal for you and your finned friends. So we can agree the proactive approach is best!
