Scuba,

That's exactly what mine will look like in about 3 days... Only difference is I'll have a pair.

On a side note, both you and Mike both have LR in your set-ups and you also use sand. How do you handle medicating? Or is the QT only for pre-introduction to the tank?

Well I have sand and lr because I don't like the empty tank lol If I need to medicate then I have another 10gal that I use for that, its not what everyone would do but it works good and why fix it if its not broke

Mine is a QT for a new addition. I put the LR in there to give it hiding places, a little hair algae to munch on & add a little filtration. If I was medicating, I wouldn't use the rock; just a sponge.

I never had a QT tank until a few months ago, just a ten gal with heater, filter, liverock and sand. I have two small clowns in it waiting to go in the 40 gal. So far I have been lucky with my SW aquariums but pushed my luck far enough, will always QT new fish, ect. From now on!

I want to set up a qt tank, do I just need sand, filter, and maybe heater, I don't think I would want lr in it cause for now this would just be for unhealthy fish cause I won't be buying any new fish for a while lol and i would just use an extra 10g I have, so will that work?

I have a 10 gallon tank with hood and stock lighting. Have a whisper HOB filter and a cheap 110 gph powerhead. I also have an air stone and pump for it. Along with the collection I have some cut up pvc pipes for hiding. That's about it! Simple but effective.

I keep the filters foam pads in my sump in case i need the qt tank in an emergency for a sickness or something.
