Welcome SuperFish!!

2.5 gallons will be Ok for most, but I, personaly, would be uncomfortable putting any medium to large fish in there as you should have them in the QT for at least two to three weeks. and thats just not a lot of room for them to move freely. You can check out an article we have here on Quarentines.
