I’m planning to get a small school of otocinclus and I’d like to quarantine them before adding the to my main tank. I’m wondering what people do for quarantine tanks. I have a spare 10gal tank with a HOB filter. I can use some filter media from my canister to cycle the tank and I’m planning a bare bottom tank. What do I feed the new otocinclus since there will be no algae in the quarantime tank? How long should the new fish spend in quarantine? I’m interested in hearing what others have done. Thanks.
