isolation / quarantine questions
I would like to start a quarantine tank- I need some advice in what I need to put in it. I have a 10 gallon, already cycled tank that i guess i could use, but i had plans of keeping fish in it regularly, so i would prefer to start it from scratch.
1) how small can i go in a quarantine tank?
2) does it need to be running constantly, or can i just keep all the spare parts and assemble as needed?
3) once i have used the tank to treat or medicate one illness, will the carbon in my filter remove the medication after use?
4) what are the bare minimum things i need to include in the tank?
