Most of you may know me from different online reef forums as Dr. Reef.
I have been in this hobby for over 25 years and have been practicing medicine on fish for over 20 years.
Quarantined Fish LLC is a Hobby turned into business. We specialize in conditioned and quarantined fish. All orders are by request. I may have a few very common and fast selling fish on hand that maybe conditioned and quarantined but for most part, by requests only.
As we all know most fish sold now a days in the market (LFS or Online) are wild caught and some tank raised. Most wild caught fish carry parasites and diseases naturally found in the oceans. Most wholesalers and retailers dont have the time or put in effort to do such procedures on mass levels and honestly is not possible to QT such large number of fish at same time thus it has to be done on request basis and on much smaller levels.
Wholesalers and Retailers are fish motels, imported/caught fish checks in and checks out.
Requested fish is administered with General Cure and 7 days of food soaked in Fish Bendazole.
Then its treated for the most common types of diseases/parasites (Ich/Velvet, Uronema and Brook) using
Chloroquine Phosphate or Copper Power.
After receiving an order, I start looking for the desired fish from different sources. Once they are available, I will send you an invoice for a small deposit to ensure a serious buyer. Remaining can be paid in full or in payments as long as its paid in full before shipping.
Your deposit is guaranteed and secured. If fish dies or any mishap happens while it's still in my possession, I will find another fish and start qt process again.
Shipping charges are going to be the actual cost. I use FedEx to ship but if you have your own account or prefer different carrier I am flexible. Normally shipping runs between $65-70 for a 11x11x11 box that can fit 4-5 med size fish and few inverts.
I am located in Tulsa Oklahoma for local pickup/delivery
We offer Arrive Alive guarantee only, In case of a DOA please email me a pic of the fish out of water with white background within 2 hrs of the delivery. In case of shipping mishap I will cover the fish for 7 days after delivery to customer or if returned to me i will observe/condition fish for 2 more weeks before shipping back out.
We do our best to provide disease free livestock, but there are too many variables like, We only treat for 4 major diseases mentioned in our qt process. Also there are diseases and viruses that may not be addressed or Customer tanks could already be infected, so We cannot guarantee our process fully. You agree that you are making the purchase at your own risk and you assume all liability of your livestock. Seller is not responsible if livestock develops any disease after sale.
