Setting up the QT...
Hey guys. I need t redo some things in my 10 gallon QT. I've moved the fish into the 55 gallon amazon tank, and now I have a chance to work on my QT.
I am thinking something like; bare-bottom (no substrate), a sponge filter, an airstone, and a carbon filter.
Do you guys think this will work for an airfilter? I would be using an Aqua-Tech 5-10 (a standard filter in a 10 gallon walmart starter kit). I would also be using a low-powered airstone for more aeration if you guys think I need more.
Opinions? I just want something simple.
I have a 10g QT. It's bare-bottom and I have a hydro-sponge filter with an airstone instead of a powerhead. I got rid of a small HOB because of too much current. Simple incandescent top and a generic heater. So far, works well and easy to see, and clean excess food, if I overfeed. Bare bottom makes it easy. Have a couple of weighted plastic plants to help reduce occupant stress (also have a clay flowerpot for a hiding place). Simple is good, mine may not be so simple after listing it all out...:-?
Don't use carbon since it would remove meds.
Also, check out this thread to add your vote to my next school fish species. Neons and glowlights are out of the question for now, though. I guess it is between Von Rio Tetra and Black Widow Tetra (aka black skirt).
Thanks for the imput, DKRST!
