Questions regarding hospital tank/fallow


New member
i'm setting up a hospital it ok to use water from my DT? Also do I need to do anything else besides remove fish for the fallow period?

I assume your doing this because of ich? If you are treating with copper, I think DT water will be ok, I personally would go ahead and use fresh saltwater because you know there will be no cysts in it and only the live ich on your fish.

If your setting up a hospital tank, which is inherently different than a QT tank. One is for meds one is for observation (although a lot of us use them for dual purposes) your fish is infected whether you use new water or DT water, just don't use DT water or anything from the DT after you first setup the hospital tank, or at least until the DT has been fallow for 72 days
