Hey everybody. I have been trying to figure out how to install an easy out of the way quarantine for my new 150 gallon cube. The problem is, I really don't have any other space for a small tank. I live in chicago in a small 1 bedroom place, and I have no where else to put a quarantine or store it when not in use.
We keep a small bucket empty and a sponge filter in the aquarium. When we need a QT we dump some tank water into the bucket and move the sponge filter over. If needed the sponge can be ditched.

Hmm.. I do like the ease of that idea. Plus, I have been using my Coralife salt bucket for routine maintenance and that would be perfect. My only problem is when I acquire coral. I want to get them slowly integrated into my lighting and the hang on system would work better for that.

Plus, I have a cat, and I am not sure how I would feel about a fish in a bucket for a month during the isolation period.

Decisions decisions.
