I don't understand what you mean when you say dark tissues. i just usually get a brown tissue of some sort and make it damp to become darker and i have a slit cover between my light and tank but it is best you dip new corals in a coral dip and the quarantine them just incase of pets because most dips don't kill egg of pest just the already live ones. Also you should get light for that size quarantine tank because the corals are going to be in there for a week so there going to need light to feed off so like an led, metal halide or t5 would be best.

Sorry for confusing you I didn't mean your tank I was talking about mines and you might eventually want to get a screen or mesh to put over your tank. It wouldn't be nice fishes jumping out. Also about the bulbs how much can fit in. I know mine ate 2 dual bulbs so 2 dual bulbs can fits some can fit 6 others 8.
