There are a number of methods for running a Q tank (quarantine). The link I gave explains how I run a Q tank personally. I personally lower the salinity in my Q tank when adding the fish. After a couple/few weeks I begin to raise the salinity with daily water changes, until the salinity is equal to the display tank.

Revisiting this topic I wanted to ask how you do introduce activated carbon and phosphate absorbing resign into your system without use of a filter?

Also I've installed the skimmer and dry rock, but still need to increase my sand depth, underestimated how much sand it would take to get it above 4 inches.
