Quaranteening Gobies?

Hi all,

I plan on putting one or two pairs of Stiphodon atropurpureus (blue neon gobies) in my 20 gallon high crypt tank and I was planning on quaranteening them in a bare 10 gallon with lots of rocks and pots. My question is, because they eat lots of algae based foods and things like ripashy, how would I go about quaranteening them? I was thinking about doing an H2O2 treatment and normally I would feed them medicated flakes for deworming as well as bacteria/prot treatment. But I'm sure in this case. Any advice?

(I plan on having them along with Emerald Dwarf Rasboras, and some C. Habrosus.)

Also how do you quaranteen cory cats?
Same issues with the feeding thing.

Have you thought about mixing some of the meds into the Repashy mix?

Well I was planning on buying premedicated food, but do you think adding the meds to the repashy would do the trick?
