quarintine tank

I have a 34g tank that had been up and running for almost 2yrs now. It had about 45lb's of LR in it...... recently i upgraded to a smaller tank and took all the live stock out of the 34g. I also took all LR but about 10lb's out....

My question is ---
  • if I take all the LR out, is there anything special I have to do to keep this tank up as a QT?
  • Should you have any LR in a QT?

don't have to have LR in QT.
put couple pvc in it for livestock to hide/swim with, that should be fine.

I don't run my QT all the time, I only use it when I need to.
so everytime I need to use it, I add my DT water to the QT and run a HOB filter that I have it in my sump + a heater.

Thanks to AMD, HN1, Zero, partypalooza, thincat, and thominil who helped me in almost every questions. Thanks everyone!!!!!

The only problem with putting LR in a QT is if you have to treat the fish in the QT then you might not be able to use that rock again. Esp. if you use copper.
