    20 Gallon Quarantine Tank

    I'm setting up a standalone 20 gallon quarantine/reef tank. Just put about 1/3 of it full of live rock, no sand.

    Going to go the one and only (dr. toms) route to get the rock acclimated asap. Hoping I can get it up in a week.... I have a coral pickup and need this tank so I can rid some algae of the plugs before I put it in my 200.

    Any quick tips on a quarantine tank. Right now one sicce powerhead, and a heater, will throw light on it in a week. No overflow or sump right now, think it will work?

    I can always do 15 gallon water changes.. heh

    Then you will want very low nutrients in the water, so that phosphate come out of the corals and plugs.
