Not correct, even if there are certainly people who can't resist putting fish into anything water. ;)
A QT should have low light, a strong filter, and good heating. Ideally it has no gravel at all or only a very thin layer of sand. If it has nothing at all, dark paper under the tank will prevent reflection. Some fake plants give the fish some feeling of security.
The reason of keeping it simple is that you may have to work with medication, chemical, heat etc. It is also vital that everything in the tank can be disinfected easily.
