They will be in the 10 gallon for two weeks then they will be transferred to a 75 gallon.

What size are they? The quarantine would have to have a seasoned filter and you will need to make sure it can keep up with their bioload, but other than that I don't see much of a problem. Just provide enough cover and make sure no one is getting bullied,

hmmm Demeter is right, you really have to have a seasoned filter. They should be ok for a short period of time but dont keep them there too terribly long. Do some water changes as you normally would but if they start acting off you need to move em el pronto. I would look into a bigger QT for future use.

+1 to Demeter.

For cover, pieces of PVC and PVC elbows make great QT decor. As long as they're pretty young, there shouldn't be any major aggression issues, but keep a close eye.

I would say they are 1"- 2" long. The filter is extremely seasoned, around two years old! The doesn't have any decor, but I'll add some PVC pieces so they have places to hide. They'll be in there a max of two weeks unless they show signs of a disease.
