Ok well after alot of research and contemplation, Ive decided to make my 20 gal FW
tank into a quarantine tank for my display. I figured it will be the best thing been reading alot of stories about ick messing up the whole tank.
So can someone give me some advice how to go abot setting this thing up. I'm gonna have it bare just some pvc
pipes and a sponge filter.
1.Should I use saltwater from my tank or basically start new?
2. I was thinking about taking the Aquaclear 3 stage filter I have on my saltwater and put it on the quarantine tank, it's been running in there since day 1. I was just running the spong and the carbon in it. Will this work in seeding the QT?
3. Will I need a powerhead?
4. Please tell me I can keep my hood on it and keep oxygen levels good?
Here is a pic of the tank still have the fish in it. Gonna trade them in for store credit. They been with me for just about a year now, its gonna be sad to see them go. Will this suffice for a decent QT.
I plan on doing this this weekend when my next batch of salt should arrive. By the way Ammo is still 0. Nitrites are declining 3.0. I'm almost there.
