Qt tank

I had a sw tank now for about 6 months. So im fairly new to everything. Been reading that qt tanks r a must have. Is it basically a cycled tank with some lr in it? Do u just get a basic filter n let it run? Is there I need to know before I would set it up? Any info is good

Going to follow along with this one because I have been rolling the dice so far with my 2 month old 45 gal.
