    Do you quarantine corals before you add them to your show tank?

    Some do but I'm one who doesn't. The only reason I can see for quarantining corals is to avoid hitchhikers.

    I haven't in the past but will be from now on.  Especially SPS coral, as "red Bugs" have become a big problem lately and my tank is infested.  Once I rid my tank of them I will be treating all new corals.
    There are dips Like Kent's Tech D.   prevents the spread of bacterial and protozoan disease • Designed for all stony corals, and most soft corals
