A simple 10 gallon QT for a fish doesn't need a power head OR a light, just a filter and a heater. A QT for corals, on the other hand, does need sufficient flow and lighting.
I have to admit, even though I am newly committed to quarantining all new fish, I am not planning to invest in equipment to quarantine new corals. Is that short-sighted?? Maybe I should post a new poll about how many people QT their new corals. I'm not sure I want the answer though.
