+1. qt tanks only need to be basic setups, a hob
filter, heater and a few pieces of pvc
piping to hide in. also I wouldn't instantly treat every new fish you get with copper. although copper is a very effective treatment, its also pretty harsh. if you leave the new fish in qt for 3-4 weeks, youll see any diseases manifest before you add to the tank, at which point id treat.
