I think I messed up with my quarantine tank

I started a 10 gallon bare bottom quarantine tank and I filled it with water from my pwc's. All the levels were ph 8.2, ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates were all 0. I picked up some fish from my lfs and put them in quarantine (blonde naso and a humu trigger). They were doing just fine but when I got home last night the tank was cloudy and the nitrates were over 100ppm. The fish were not moving very much and I got scared so I just put them in my regular tank and hoped for the best. This morning everyone was fine and eating and swimming around. What do I need to add to my qt tank to make it useful? All I run in it now is a filter and a heater...Thanks
