Quarantine Tank

Setting up a QT before adding new fish to my 75gal SW tank. What's the best way together bacteria started in the tank? Have bare bottom and now live rock.

Quarantine for saltwater fish

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure: A Quarantine Tank for Everything by Steven Pro - Reefkeeping.com

If there is already LR in yours, where did it come from? Is that tank/water proven disease/parasite free? If you can borrow some filter media (floss, sponge, etc.) from a cycled tank that'll help.

Thanks for the reply. Typo - no live rock . . . I will give the sponge/ filter idea a try. Thanks.
