Quarantine Tank Setup Questions

Recommended Posts

Hey all

First, my fish are both healthy so no emergency.  But I'm new to fishkeeping and like to be prepared.  I see many references to hospital and quarantine tanks.  Do you all keep an empty tank on hand and fill it quick with conditioned tap water when you need it?  Or do you keep a cycled, fishless tank at all times "just in case"?  

Thoughts?

Thanks,

Beth

I keep an empty tank and set it up if needed. I don't usually worry if its cycled because I'm doing frequent WCs with a sick fish anyway, but if I do need it to be cycled I grab some media from another filter and use that in a QT filter.  :)

I have an empty 20 gallon that I keep on hand as a hospital/quarantine tank. I set it up when needed. I move a sponge filter from my main tank to my hospital tank for aeration/media, but I normally do daily water changes for that tank anyways.
