Do any of you Freshwater dip your puffers before putting them into quarantine or do you skip the freshwater dip procees and just acclimate them to quarantine? The reason I ask is I have read that if a puffer is out of water and gets startled, they can take in air instead of water which can be hard for them to get rid of and also can be fatal if they can't get rid of the air and get stressed out. Also if they get frightening in a freshwater dip containing methylene blue or some other medicinal preventative is that bad for them since they would take in some of that water?
How would you transport one from quarantine to display after it is ready (has been through the total quarantine process and has been treated for any illnesses and/or parasites)?
Would you also need to dump some quarantine water into the display with the fish if they can't be exposed to air?
I don't have a puffer fish yet, but would like to get one in the future .
Thanks In Advance.
