I’m setting up a last minute 5G QT tank:

It’s for a sunrise dottyback.

Any more tips/tricks you guys have? I decided to go bare bottom, just because that seemed to be the most popular method.

I plan to use media from my 29g to ‘instant’ cycle this tank.

Ah, ok, I will look for some. Will the cave do for now?
Looks ok, when I mention hide I mean something where the fish is able to be out of line of sight , totally hidden like a cave. Fish needs to feel secure and not vulnerable , some fish dgaf and it depends on the personality but I like to provide hiding places in case you get a scared fish.
