Post pics of QT set-ups

I just posted a pic of my new 10 gallon cheapie QT tank, and I was thinking what do other people use.

Sooo... lets see some QT set-ups if that sounds okay.

I'm not proud, but I'm using my 55g right now for my qt. If a fish were to get sick in there I have an empty 10g I can use to dose meds since I have some live rock and sand in the 55g and some inverts still.

Kinda glad I have the 55g as the blue tang in qt is loving the rock to sleep under. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I wasn't really sure how many people would post or confess, I was just feeling kinda crazy and figured I'd like to see what, and how others set up their tanks.

Thanks guys for the info.

I've been in the hobby(with saltwater) a little over 6 years and it seems QTing is not a practice a lot of people do...

It appears most people go to a qt after an outbreak of some sort. I lost 6 fish in less than a week cause i didn't qt a tang. :-( I am now qt'ing. LOL

That was an expensive week for me and the poor fish! It's a personal preference thing. I;m trying to err on the side of caution right now by keeping my 125g fish qt'd.

Here's one I just set up, more of a holding tank, as I wouldn't leave anything in there long. It's about an 8 gallon, small heater, power head and a little LR.
