Updated pic. More dry rock and some rearrangement.
Damsels are doing great. I've targeted the aggressor of the 2 and I've decided I'm going to keep the more passive one.
Like always send advice.

Okay guys ..
I have a 5 gallon tank just sitting in my room laying to waste. Ive had ideas for hospital tank but I wouldn't know how to properly set it up. I have a standard hob 5g filter with it. Would that be all the filtration I need? Get back to me. thanks

If you run that filter on the hospital tank, I'd use just filter floss...don't use any carbon or the such, it'll bullify the meds you dose the tank with

To set up a QT/hospital tank here's what i do i run two HOB's on my DT The smaller one is used for the QT it's kept filled with poly-fill so it can hold a good sized Bacti-base fill the QT with water from the main tank put the small hob on, put some pieces of PVC in so the fish have place to hide as this will help lower stress,
run the QT bare bottomed easy to clean later. you will get a small AMO spike after 2-3 days so be ready to change a little water.
After your done with the QT clean everything with vinegar and fresh water Toss the old ploy-fill repack the HOB and put it back on the main tank to ready it for the next time.
this method has worked for the past 11 years for me with no problems. oh get the poly-fill from a craft store much less costly A big bag cost 5-6 bucks and last yrs. One more thing (sry) If you keep the QT full it wont be long before it becomes a Display tank lol

it will clear up did you soak it before you put it into the tank sometimes it has a chalky film to it
