    What do you think about doing aquascaping in a 10 gallon quarantine tank?

    Are you going to keep it as a QT tank. I don't see why you couldn't.

    Yeah I would keep it as that. Just figured if I have a tank just waiting to be used I could aquascape it and it would than already have some natural hiding places for new or sick fish.

    While I wouldnt exactly make an aquascape for a QT tank I would definitely add some hiding places for the fish - it makes their stay more comfortable, no fish wants a bare tank. What I personally use are some PVC tubes and hornwort. The fish feel safer but I can still monitor them easily. Also think about netting fish out on a very well thought aquascape, not exactly easy or fun...
    With that said, I really dont see why you couldnt aquascape it if you want to.
