Starting up my 75 gal....quarantine tank question....

While I have my display tank cycling should I also be cycling a quarantine tank? Or should I just wait till my display tank is cycled and then use that water to fill my quantine tank?

I don't have a quarantine tank just yet but...after reading these threads I deffinatly will!!

Depends, if your going to tear the quarantine down after each use...then you don't need to cycle it, simply fill it with water from the display and run your qtank filter on the display tank (after cycled) for a week or two. If your going to run it all the time....then I suggest a better filter tha the sponge filter recommended in the article and I would cycle it while the display tank is cycleing.
