For a qt tank I would probably say a minimum of 20 you dont want anything to be cramped up for 2-4 weeks

On the clowns from the research I have done I like them too. They are hardier when captive bread over wild caught but are tolerable either way

alright thank you im converting my 10 and 20 high freshwater into a 55 gallon in a few weeks so would a 20 high work? and if i put in a cleaner crew and fed them regularly would that keep it cycled? ive also been toying with the idea of acclimating a molly to saltwater so i might keep one of those in there too to keep the tank going.

A 20 should do and I don't think a clean crew in the 2O is necessary I would just keep my 20g a bare bottom because you only need it when adding new fish and corals and keeping unhealthy fish so a bare bottom will help be be cleaner ( just what a new and or unhealthy fish needs)

And I remember the tangs name it is a bristle tooth tomini tang or just a bristle tooth tang. I believe the minimum tank requirement is 70 or 75g but they are semi aggressive like almost ever other tang

I honestly never had a quarantine tank and I should it would of save me a bunch but u can constantly keep it running or a week or couple of days before you the the fish coral or invertebrate use water from your fish tank would be best because the fish/etc would be getting used to your water or if it is a wounded fish it might be too much of a dramatic change. You should probably have your sump connected to that tank as well that would be best

I think Voshon is referring to using your refugium for an injured fish not to hokd new acquisition....this practice is used especially when you have something new in yiur QT already. If the fish is showing signs of aliment you definitely dont wont to treat it in your sump
