Finally decided to set up a quarantine tank. looking for easy and super hardy fish to keep in a 10g quarantine tank to maintain the cycle. so far im thinking 6 feeder guppies or 6 zebra danios. any other suggestions? the plan is to just let it sit and do weekly 50% water changes until i get more fish for my display tanks. but i want something to in there to keep the cycle going and having a full empty tank would just drive me nuts?

Put a sponge filter in your main tank and then when it is time to QT fish, move the sponge filter to the QT tank. Virtual instant cycle.... (once the sponge filter has been in the established tank for a month or two)

This way you don't even have to have the QT tank running all the time.
