most are bare bottom with some pvc pipes in them. most people have a sponge in their sump that has bacteria in it and put the sponge in the tank with a HOB filter

My last week of a 4 week QT period is done with water from my DT.

Starting on week 3
I drain 10% out of the QT per day and replace with water from my DT (easy for me to do as I have plumbing for waterchanges setup so I can pump DT water into the QT).

By the end of week 4 my QT is 100% DT water. This way the fish is already acclimated to the DT salinity, temp, ph and other params.

I have transitioned 8 fish this way and they seem to respond well.

I use old DT water in my quarantine all the time. Theres nothing wrong with it, it helps the fish when they go to the DT and it saves on salt.
