Quarantines

For a quarantine, is it okay to have a bare bottom? And When I get my first fish, before any others are in the tank, do I qt it? I would assume so, in case it has Ich, etc, so I wouldn't have to treat the whole big tank. Is this correct?

Most people have bare bottoms in their quarantine tanks. And it us always a good idea to quarantine new arrivals if you have one.

So even the very first fish should be quarantined?

If you can, quarantining all the new fish is ideal. Just to be on the safe side.
