You could always just store the tank somewhere. Fill it up with summer clothes or something. Have a sponge filter run in your sump and the other misc item ready, then when/if you need your QT you can set it up with water, the small sponge filter and everything.

FW danios aren't going to cycle a marine QT tank.

I'd buy a small hang on filter and run it on your sump. When you need it for QT, pull it off the sump and put it on a bare bottom QT with PVC for hiding spots. You won't want to use substrate or live rock because you'll nuke them anyway if you have to medicate anything. When you're done with the QT, you can tear it down. Just toss the media from the hang on filter, clean it, and replace with new media before you put it back on the sump. That's what I would do anyway.

Now that I can do! Would a terra wispsr for a 20 gallon be good enough? I know it's an inter but I have one I was going to toss. If not I can buy a cheap one no biggie. And just set up the tank when I need it. Do I need a heater for the QT?
Haha all my clothes are summer clothes living in Florida but I get what your saying.

I was also wondering could I keep a kole tang and a bristle tooth tang in my 75?

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

ok.

Which one would you guys do?

Is it ok to have two kinds of the same species. Like 2 different gobies?

So I'm going to do the QT that I just put up when I need it. With an HOB filter on my sump. And now my tank will be safe! Now my question should I do a 10 gallon or a 15 tall?

Yep, I believe that they are the same length, so I would go with the 15g tall too.

They are the same length that's why I went with the two sizes! Ok so 15 it is! Thanks!

Hey can anyone find a brute 64 food grade and post a link? I'm trying to get a price idea and I can't find one any where!! I've been googling everything I can think of!

Thanks!!
