Breeding tank, quarantine tank, nursery. We all need one, just in case.

If you are an advanced hobbyist you probably know what the breeding tank, quarantine tank and nursery are for.

But if you not, no worries. I will quickly explain they purpose.


Breeding tanks / Nursery

Breeding tank it is a tank used for breeding fish, snails or other aquatic species. It is usually a small tank not exceeding 60l of water. Such an aquarium, like any other, has filtration, heating and basic lighting. These tanks are usually with out decorations and plants. These tanks are intended for fish that spawn or for young fish that have recently come into the world.

Thanks to isolation from other fish and parents the fry have a much better chance of survival.


Quarantine tank

Same as breeding tanks, those aquariums are small in size. Hobbyist are using them to separate new fishes until they are sure that the fish is healthy. All process may take up to 2 months. Those tanks are equip same way was our normal tanks, but usually with out any decorations or plants.


Healing/recovery fish tank

Same as breeding tanks, those aquariums are small in size. Hobbyist are using them to separate sick fish from rest of the group and treat them. Depend on fish and disease tank need filter, heater and lights, but plants, gravel and other decorations are not needed.


The Irish market offers very limited purchase options for these tanks. It’s best to create them yourself. In the Aqua Remedy offer you can find FLOAT type aquariums, which can easily be used for quarantine or breeding tanks.

They come in different sizes and what is more important, they will not cost a fortune.
