So I am excited to say in one week exactly I will be crossing the boarder and picking up two orandas from Rain Garden at Fed Ex 2 hours away from me. I thought this would happen in more like a year from now but my partner is very supportive after seeing my two little charming and engaging orandas, Jadzia & Cherub - one from Walmart and one from Petsmart. He then saw the pictures of Rain Garden's Orandas and agreed we have to have a couple of them I am so excited! I followed the quarantine procedures with both my little duo and both benefited immensley. Jadzia recovered from ich and some kind of intestinal bacterial infection and Cherub from amonia burns. I have read about quarantine procedures from here, other sources, and from Steve from Rain Garden. My tank and aqua clears are seeded and cycled. My water changer is ready! But I guess my questions are: Should I put the new orandas in a salt solution of .1 right away, as soon as I bring them home? Or should I give it a couple days or more? Do I need to do the prazi treatment with them? I asked Steve their ages and one is just over a year and the other is just over 2 years. They are older and I'm not sure what effect this has on quarantine and changes in their environment. I also know he is a reputable breeder so they were well taken care of before I recieve them. But after travelling so far, the expense, and all the effort, i really want to do the right and best things for the the two beauties.
