Hi,

I have a question about introducing new fish to my main tank. I currently have some fish in a quarantine tank waiting to be added to the main tank. I currently dose the main tank with flourish comprehensive and a macro/micro mix and dose with flourish excel. I am not dosing the Quarantine tank with anything. I was wondering if the difference in water quality will be a shock to the fish when i add them to the main tank, should i dose the quarantine tank just to get them used to the water quality? I do plan on doing a 50% water change on the main tank to remove the excess nutrients before i add the new fish, but i still imagine the water will be somewhat different. just wondering what peoples thoughts are on this. thanks.

In a situations like this I just do a water change on both tanks, so both are replenished with the same water and then just transfer the fish. Both tanks are using the same water source and using ferts or not won't matter to the fish.
