Default Adopting fish

This week we adopted a half dozen nice goldfish from a neighbor. It seemed a lot of work to isolate them, so we poped them in. Her pond had been healthy for a decade. Risky...probably.

Anyone have really good ideas about quck quarantine?

Quick quarantine? None exist. One is probably safer from an established
pond than coming from a pet shop or dealer. Regardless, the biggest risk in
such a situation is how their immunity stands up to the buggies in your
pond and same with your current fish to whatever the new recruits bring in.
A salt dip of the newbies probably wouldn't have hurt. ~ jan
