Quarantine tank

What is the smallest size quarantine tank you can have for SW fish. My big tank is forty gallons so I don't have any really large fish. I live in a 600 square door apartment so I don't have lots of extra space.

The smallest I ever go is 20g as you can house and divide quite easily. Your fish should fit in a 20g. If any aggressors just separate with eggcrate (prob have to add mesh over eggcrate to prevent fish from swimming through).

20G sounds good, but I can attest to success with a pair of 15G Tetra tank kits had cheap at Petco. Tank, heater, hood, light & HOB filter for $40. If you already have the other bits then yeah, get a bare 20G, but in combination I just couldn't beat that price point. Used them as HT & QT separately.
