For those with hospital/quarenteen tanks. Are your tanks cycled? How do you keep the cycle going if they are?

Keep an extra sponge in your main tank's filter and transfer it to the hospital tank as needed. Voila- instant cycled tank! Return the sponge to the main tank when done or replace with a new one to be seeded for future use.

I just leave my hospital tanks running and throw one of my male bettas in there to keep it cycled. When I need it for my cichlids, the betta goes back in his bowl...Kind of like a mini vacation for him, and no empty tanks for me!

I leave my hospital/quarantine/fry tank in a box and empty until needed. Then I just take some media from the filter of one of my other tanks and place it in the hospital tank's filter and its ready to go.
