QT and LR

Any reason not to have LR in a QT, as long as
the rock is not transfered from tank to tank?

Will meds kill off the LR?

Thanks!
I have some "extra" LR and figured I'd just put it in the QT,
seeing as how I'm gonna have fish in there for the next
6 months as I set up my 100gallon.

Not at all. As long as you don't move that LR back into your main tank. This is especially important if you use copper meds.

Depends on what meds you use. Copper meds will kill off any inverts living in the LR, but should not effect the biological bacteria unless the copper dose is extremely high. Most anti-bacterial medication *WILL* kill off any beneficial biological bacteria on the LR and it will then become dead base rock.
