Default Quarantine time for scuds

What is your suggested quarantine time for wild collected scuds? I recently went down to a nearby pond and collected a few dozen, and now am keeping them in a separate container with leaves and other detritus. I plan to seed the tanks and culture them as a food source once they are sufficiently quarantined.

You want to use their offspring as food. Place into their container some elodea, rooting wood and leaves and they should produce well for you.
