Big enough for QT tank?

    It depends on the size & how many fish you want to quarantine at any one time, a 10 gallon would be better really.

    I generally just recommend using a large plastic storage container like they sell at WalMart for $5 or so. Along with a heater and sponge filter. When you don't need it you can easily store it away, and then stick the sponge filter in another tank to keep it cycled.

    I have some of these containers that hold about 6 gallons and some that are really big and hold about 20 gallons half full. I say half full because although they are bigger, but if you fill them all the way up you've got to support the sides or they bow out too much.

    I'm planning on getting two angelicus loaches, I don't I'll be able to put then in the qt tank anyways seeing as it's not cycled yet
