We moved from Virginia to Alabama and I sold off my 20-year hoard of aquarium equipment and tanks thinking I would get new after move. We have settled in and I went the pond route instead of in-door tanks. So, my pond is under construction, we are taking our time with it, and I am now working out all the things I need to support a thriving community of shubunkin goldfish and plants.\nSo, what do I need for a QT tank. Thinking I can set it up now but not sure what ponders use for an ideal QT tank? I suppose that after I set it up I can begin to collect fish/plants in it that will be the first stocking of the pond. \nDo folks routinely treat new fish in the QT tank with anything or just observe them for a week or two. I don’t want to default to my aquarium rules of thumb and screw up my new pond.\nThanks.
