> [Tom Wood lists problems with various q-tank options]
You left off one option: keeping a spare filter on your main tank.
The when you buy new fish just put the cycled sponge (HOB filter,
whatever) on the q-tank. Viola, cycled quarantine tank.
I've been doing this for a couple of years now. No problems. No
worries about ammonia, no potentially sick fish in my main tank.
This is especially important in a reef tank, where the fish are
much more expensive, and there's almost no main-tank treatment
