QT Plannng

I've only had a 55 Lake Malawi tank for about 5 months and learned much what I know through the Hard School of Knocks (which can be expensive, BTW... I don't recommend attending whatsoever). I'm considering budgeting/planning for a minimal, low-cost, QT that could potentially double as fry tank. What is the smallest tank size and life support that I could safely get away with?

I havent had much use for a QT tank, but all my fish have been added already. You can always use your sump for fish that have to be removed but you plan to put back in. Now for fry I did something really simple. A acrylic cube with no top. Drilled holes in it so water can get in and out. It has worked really well. Check it out.
