Do you quarentine the clean up crew?

If so do you do it for 4 weeks or less?

Also my quarantine tank is just about up and I will use fresh RO SW. Does my quarantine tank cycle or can I use it right away?

No Just put them in. (after acclimation) inverts and corals do not need quarentine in most if not all instances.

You will have to cycle the QT. Remember, it needs the beneficial bacteria that converts ammonia (fish waste/decaying organic matter) to nitrAtes.
