Questions

Either a qt tank or a really nice large sump! If it will fit under your new tank!

Qt is a quarantine tank and a sump is a filter system

Sorry about that, it's easy to forget the steep learning curve of marine!

As already said a quarantine tank is really useful as you can introduce fish into this first before the main tank to ensure they are healthy and free from issues.

It is also ideal for transfering poorly creatures to so they can be treated and the spreading of problems can be reduced in the main tank, we hope.

The sump is as said, a filter system commonly used in marine set ups. Looks a little daunting at first but a quick search on here reveals a wealth of knowledge on this piece of equipment.
