Setting up a QT tank...

Is there or can there be a thread that tells how to set up a QT tank?

I've found out how to set up and cycle a new tank (I now know what I did wrong and what to do right for the next tank) but I've not been able to find too much on setting up a QT except that I should.

What size tank? Does it have to cycle? Does it have to run all the time even when I have nothing new? How long do I leave livestock in QT?

Also, is it a good idea to QT "new" live rock just to make sure that there isn't any unwanted hitchhiker?

Sorry, but I want to start doing this correctly since it's going to be a hobby we enjoy and plan to have for a long time. We don't want to harm or make any fish unhappy.

Found the link to QT Tanks but if anyone wants to add their two cents please do.

Yes, it's very good. I'm glad I finally found it. I got my test kit today. Not the easiest thing to use, but I'm gettin' there
