Quarantine Tank

Hello all - I am going to setup a 10G quarantine tank this weekend, but I want to make sure I have everything that I need. If I am missing something, please let me know. Thanks

10G glass tank w/hood & light
Filtration System (BIO Wheel, Powerhead?)
Heater
crushed coral or live sand?

I'm just trying to get an idea of what I should use. Any feedback would be great. Thanks

Mike

for a quarantine tank, I would not use any substrate, it will "take up" the meds, if you use them, and it will trap detritus.

So should I just leave it with no subsrate on the bottom? Just maybe add some decoration corals for them to hide in? That sounds easy enough. Thanks for the information.

You can add pvc elbows, they will not absorb anything and give the fish a place to hide. Other than that, bare bottom is the way to go.
