With Boxing Day coming up, I was thinking about putting together a quarantine tank. Just curious to what everyone else has done. From simple and basic to big and fancy. What is required to keep one going and healthy when not in use? Pics are always appreciated. What is a good and/or minimum size.

If you are worried about ich,
the tank transfer method works for me.
Basically, every 3 days you change the fish to another tank/bucket. For a total of 15 days. I put them into the DT on the 16th morning.
During two of those 3 day cycles, I add prazipro to rid the fish of parasites.
