    Not buy a nem? :whistling:

    The sure fire way is 72 days in isolation.

    Well I've done it, I am now the proud owner of a red bubble tip nem. If my clowns don't host him he may be for sale again lol

    Well thinking about it logically the WS cant host the nem can it, so they would only get in through the water it came in or if there is any in there dormant state on it i guess... so dare i say it, its very unlikely!

    Well the nem has moved and lives upside down in a cave and pop's it's tentacles out when the lights come on.
    The bloody inconsiderate clowns haven't looked at it twice.

    UPDATE..... Yesterday I finished my 2nd quarantine (4 weeks) run all has gone well, I am very pleased with the Paraguard so far:clap:, the only down side was one of my purple fire fish attacked and killed the other one 1 day before the end:w00t:, so I have now put the other nasty fire fish, starry blenny and lamarks angel in the DT and they are eating and look settled.

    I have just got back from my LFS and now have a green Mandarin, chalk goby, pyjama wrasse and a yellow tank in my QT :dance::dance:

    Yes, and I'm very pleased with it, just dose it daily, no test kits needed and as is leaves the water column after 24 hours after you last treatment day you can put the fish in the DT without worrying about the med, as I've mentioned before its a broad spectrum so treats for parasites, fungal, bacterial and viral problems.
