You want quite the opposite. HOB
filter, heater (if needed), and a place for the fish to hide & feel comfortable..... that's it.
I keep a small mesh bag of biomax in my sump so it's seeded with BB, and my mixing barrel that I pull pwc
water from always has enough water mixed & at temp to fill my QT tank if needed (20 gallons). All I have to do is pull the biomax out, drop it in the small HOB
filter, fill the tank with water, plug everything in, and I have a hospital/QT tank up & running within 10-15 minutes.
