29 gallon for QT'ing

I have a 29 gallon tank, heater, glass canopy, and strip-light that I want to set up for QT'ing a couple of Occellaris Clownfish. What should I be using for filtration? I was thinking about getting an "Aqua Culture" hang on back filter from walmart and setting it up in the main tank for a week or two and then transferring it over to the 29 QT when I bring the fish home. Good Idea? Any suggestions?

I use an Aquaclear mini for QT. I like it because you can fill the basket with whatever you want, unlike some other proprietary hob's. If this HOB is similar it should be fine. 2 weeks on the main tank should also be sufficient.
