What should i do with this nano 17 gal.

I have it set up in my room, 17 gal bow front. I think thats what it is. I have a 55 gallon downstairs with fish and live rock.. Soon to add corals as soon as it ages.

So question is what should i do with this new tank. Quarantine, nano or what???
Cant make it a sump for my 55 since its a bowfront. I plan on getting a regular long 20 or 10 gal for that sometime soon i hope. carey told me itll be a hassel and im taking her word for it, shes a pro.

If you don't have a quarantine, that's why I think you should do with it. =]

I vote quarantine as well. You never know what may happen plus it's big enough to treat multiple fish over a 10g setup.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thing about that, qt sounds boring lol. I dont plan on adding anything for a while and my current livestock in my 55 is doing ok. So basically a set up tank, with a piece of base rock, a running filter and heater but no fish in it.

LOL I actually wouldnt put any rock in a qt, the meds can leech into it making in unuseable.

I know it would be way way cooler to set it up and put in fish and all but thats gonna cost ya some $$ and time. It's up to you.

I dont know what to do, i thought about freshwater to but if i make it a qt without rock wont that stress the fish, it wont have anywhrre 2 hide.

And idk about freshwater im loving the saltwater side right now lol, i used to have a 55 with 3 clown loaches and angels. I like saltwater fish alot more
