Colonies

So any tips on how to properly rid of any pests before introducing a new colony into my established tank?
Thank you in advance!

They do need to be quarantined. I get them into bayer a few times.

I give them a few months (I am incredibly patient) so that I can see if any bite marks start to appear. I am always looking for new growth too.
