If you just set the tank up when you need it how do you get around the cycle.
Keep a sponge in the sump or filter of your main. When you need to set up the qt, just place this sponge (seeded with bacteria) into the qt tank filter and you are ready to go.

If i decide to keep the thank going all the time what kind of fish would be a good choi to keep in there all the time?
No fish, you can simply "feed" the bacteria a couple times a week with a little fish food.

Thanks for all the responces. I think i'm going to just save for the 240 and associated equipment. The Qt tank will be a "used as needed" tank and not up all the time. I'll just seed it as suggested above.

I'm thinking of building a wall stand/canopy that looks like the wall itself. I'm planning on building space in there for large plastic trash cans for water changes and to collect water from the RO. I'll try to provide a space in there for the QT as well.

Thanks again for all the responces.
