Plain emoty tank, no sand or gravel or rock. Just some pvc pieces for the fish to hide in. A heater and some type of filtration. Lots of people use sponge filters that they keep in their up and running tanks and when they need to qt they just move the sponge filter over.

I'm lucky in the fact that I kept my 55g running with its own filtration for the last few months. Now if I had to treat anything in it I would have to move it though since I have some live rock and sand in the 55g

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Same for fish... I have always temp my fish and float acc them. Added a lil water every 5 min until bag was filled up. Scooped them out and away they went... Lol. Guess I've been doing it wrong..

Guys I just ordered from aquacon yesterday and cannot say I've enjoyed the experience so far... No emails that my fish were getting shipped today, plus I got charged twice for the order, and they also managed to charge me on a credit card that gave me an error, and they charged me twice for that one too...... They better email me back or I swear I'll drive the 45 min to go to where they're located....
