I've just joined this forum and have been battling ich in my 55g tank. This has prompted my to set up a quarantine / isolation tank for any newcomers.
I really don't know where to start. For instance, will a 5g tank do or is too small? How should the tank be cycled? I have a BioWheel 400 in my 55g, should I Fluval BioMax media that I have in the media containers to help cycle? This may sound silly but can a tank remain cycled without having fish living in it? Is it best to keep a isolation tank simply bare bones, meaning no gravel, maybe a decoration or two so that any fish can hide?
Basically, any information you can give me will help. Thanks!
