Question Quarantine Tank

What is the recommended size QT/hospital for a 125gal display? Current largest fish is a yellow tang.
Also - what are your thoughts on leaving the QT up and running vs just taking water from your display when needed?

I mean i would use probably a 30 gal + for your size tank and fish...its all depends on how big your fish are and what you preference and budget is...as always its easier if you let the qt running and have it running as the tank will constanly cycle ...keep up with water changes and check water parameters constantly...IMO you can take water from the tank but for emergency purposes only i would say
