if you have a decent bio load in your main tank I would say a week should be fine so with 10 days goin I'd say you're all set. I would, however, leave it there until you actually have the fish you're going to QT
. Then take the media out and set up the filter when you put the fish in. This way the bacteria on the media doesn't die off before you get the fish in the QT
. Make sure you have the QT
tank set up and up to temp/SG
/Ph before getting your fish as well. Best of luck, keep us up to date!
