Quarantine means apart from each other not all together, this is what make them all sick, and the highest recommended dose of copper is .15 ppm NOT .20 - .30. Levels this high will burn their gills and stress their internal organs and can cause later death. Formalin is a class B carcinogen (is used for pickling fish) and causes cancer. Both of these have been used the same way for 40 years and it still “DOES NOT WORK”!
ALL fish in the wild DO NOT have parasites, maybe a few, most of them already live in their central filtration systems. And you can’t compare lions, tigers and bears “oh my”, to life in the ocean, besides you don’t put 200 dogs together and pour gasoline on them for fleas.
So after nuking ALL the fish for 35 days with copper, formalin, various antibiotics, praziquantel, you still don’t get all the parasites? But you have burned their gills, and stressed their liver and kidneys which kills them later after the “SALE”!
This is why the Aquariums have to keep replacing fish monthly. In fact just after the event other day we saw the Baltimore Aquarium got a whole pallet of fish. We have NOT ordered fish from them for years because of the way they keep their systems and they don’t live.
They have FIVE PROFESSIONAL MARINE BIOLOGISTS with masters in Chemical killing and PHD’s in “old school” from nuke’um high. This is the so called “BEST” the industry has to offer and is the reason we will be including the 3 that they kill for every ONE that is ordered, in our experience. Increasing the Baltimore aquariums death rate times 3.
In our book, “professional” does not mean killing 3 out of 4 fish for money. This place is one of the “NASTIEST” places We’ve ever been. A trailer with some carports running with what looks like a sewer lagoon out back. They also monopolize the fish industry in the keys. By helping to make laws that support them.
I bet if you ordered 100 so called clean lookdowns at the end of one month you MIGHT have 5 left. Some “BEST”!
