I plan on qt'ing everything that I'm able to. I would rather see if they come with a disease and such that I can cure then have it show up after they are in my DT and crash the tank. I'm sorry but I don't want to repeat what Carey went through. I'd be at wits end.

I was of the same mindset, BEFORE my current happenings. It has made a believer outta me for sure. I still have to wonder if the last 3 fish I have are gonna make it, they are eating and acting pretty normal.

You see everyone preach about QT'ing, well, it's not empty words. I had to learn the hard way.

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

I'm going to be setting up my 55g in my basement on a functional stand and toss some lr in with it, use that for my qt, figured its overkill in size but I could qt 2 or 3 fish at a time, plus if any of my fish get sick I can use it as a pital tank

Is it ok to put live rock in qt/hospital tank as long as it never goes in main tank ?

Any rock you put in a QT will absorb whatever meds you put in the tank. Not a good idea for rock or sand in a qt. Just some pvc tubes for the fish to hide in and thats it

It's supposed to be a stress free enviroment, so just a heater, filter and lid if he's a jumper. lol

I think I may paint the back and sides of one 10g tank so it'll be nice and dark in there.

Our QT has 4 various size PVC pipes and a few elbows. Nothing fancy but everything we have ever QT'd has climbed/swam all over those things. The hermit crabs roll them around the tank. We occasionally throw some chaeto trimmings in there when it's up and running. Nothing that you can't wash or toss when you are finished.
