    tip on keeping a QT tank going

    Just thought I'd mention this method for you that want to keep your quarentine tanks going without any fish in them. I've got a couple going all the time and to keep it cycled you add 1 drop of pure ammonia for every 5 gallons...once per week. This keeps it right on for the day your at the LFS and bring that unexpected fish home and need that QT!

    I have mine drilled and plumbed into my main reef tank. This way when I use it as a QT tank, I just cut off the lines to the reef and then just recirculate the water within itself.

    I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS THOUGH....

    My QT tank now use to be my anenome and clown tank...that's why it's plumbed. I cannot treat the QT tank now with copper as it will affect my reef tank once I start it back up. My QT tank now is simple a LIMBO or observation tank that I put my new arrivals in to make sure they are healthy. When I need to treat, I just grab an old 15 gallon and start it up.

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!
