Today I put a sponge in my main tank's sump in order to put in my QT
. I have a 10 gallon QT
with a heater, some pvc
elbows, and a Penguin Mini Bio-Wheel Filter. So, here are my questions:
Can I go ahead and fill my QT
with water from my main tank and start running the filter even though I am not going to be purchasing a fish for about a week? If this is ok, should I add fish food a couple times a week for bacteria?
How far in advance should the sponge from my sump be placed in the QT
before I put a fish in there?
When I break down my QT
after the quarantine period, do I need to rinse it out with anything special if there were no meds in the tank?
Am I missing anything??
