Sadly I have done that before....My first frogs I just threw them in there and they came back with hooks (top it off, they were in a 55 gallon )I think what really ticks me off the most is infected frogs in the viv. In the reef world you can just go for awhile with no fish in your tank and your pretty much good. In frog world you put an infected frog in a viv..... That viv is toast. Now with the time I have invested in the few vivs I have and the time I have seen others invest. I would honestly say it just seems practical to trash the whole thing.
So I would be furious to have to trash one of my vivs
So I QT.
It is a good idea to QT all new frogs. It helps you identify any sick frogs, helps you make sure they are all eating, and if anything goes wrong you don't have to tear down and sterilize an entire viv. It also makes it easier to collect for fecals.Do you have to QT even if picking up from a well-known place? (saurian, Josh's frogs, etc.)
I hear ya on that. Also know plenty of friends that had lost stuff to not QT. Better to be safe than sorry.Yes... QT from everywhere. Now I am pulling from my reef experience but I personally know several "vendors" on the reef side that were selling infected corals. So being that I am new. I am not sure what vendors are good and what vendors are bad. So it's better for me to QT everything.
I don't want to say that I never skipped a QT on the reef side of things. But I have many friends that accepted corals from people they trusted and soon lost entire collections because someone they trusted didn't know they were infected.
So in short, It's safer to QT everything every time.
