I just bought a 10 gallon in the clearance section today at walmart because the light was defective. I had a few ballasts laying around and hooked it up and it work. It was the 10gallon kit for like $50... I got it for $25. Im going to be using this as the QT for my 65 gallon tank... all my fish will be under 3-4" full size and when I buy them they will be around 3/4-1"... is this fine?
Also, if I start the cycle on the QT a few weeks before I start my main could I put fish in the QT after it cycles and then if there are no illnesses after 4-5 weeks could I add them in the main if its cycled? Does that sound like a decent plan? I plan to start out with two false perc. clowns or maybe 3 banggai cardinals.
