QT set up

I have a 10g tank that I have that I am going to set up as my qt tank when I get new fish.

I have never set one up before, so I need to know what I need for a successful trials when quarantining fish. Heaters, lights... Etc any chemicals or anything special I need to get?

No light needed IMO,,i never use one...Will need a Powerhead for circulation and some sort of HOB filter to put Media that has an established amount of bacteria to avoid a cycle(i always use the one from my DT )You could also use a piece of LR and a cup full of sand from your DT too..
