Then say hey this is the "by the book method" but I don't agree with it myself LOL Coming from someone who lost a Red Sea Eritrean Butterflyfish (look it up lol) I will never use the "book" method again, I am just glad I didn't lose my show size passer angel that I had at the time.... which is why I will continue to push not going by the book as long as the fish is eating. If its not eating your doomed anyway so go ahead and try what you want you may get lucky but odds aren't good. Yes, going by the book works sometimes but it is risky and IMO more risky then leaving them in the DT. With ALL that I have said, said.... Initial and proper QT (which includes a proper sized qt for your fish) is the best way to go to lower your risks of contracting saltwater herpes in your tank.
