quarantine tank

should a quarantine tank be tied into the main system or should it be a separate system all together?

It should be separate so that any fish in QT that comes down with a disease won't spread it to your main tank.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty

Perfect. Just make sure to keep the water quality in the quarantine tank up to spec with the reef.
