A Good Quarantine System

A Good Quarantine System
 pdf version
This document is written with great attention to detail.  It is appropriate reading for any pond keeper interested in building an effective quarantine or holding system.
The goal of a quarantine system is to check the Koi for disease, not stress them until they develop a problem!  Have you always wanted a quarantine system that would be easy to maintain, keep good water quality, and be relatively inexpensive?  Wouldn’t it be nice if it also doubled as a tank for sick fish, or a growing tank for young fish?  Ah – “too difficult,” you say.  NOT!  This document describes in detail a system that has been tested and improved on for years!
Learning Objectives:
