What size is good for QT tanks?

I want to setup a 180-300 gallon tank in the future, Im planning a basement sump/fish room with frags,QT for fish and coral, and a nice large fuge.

What would I need to QT a few tangs at the same time? 55 gallon large enough?

The short answer is it depends on what size of fish you plan to buy.

If you plan to buy juveniles, then a 20-30 gallon should do.

If you plan to buy larger specimens, then yes, a 55 might be a good idea, or larger if you can spare the space/$$.

Good on you for thinking ahead. Too many people bypass the quarantine until AFTER a disaster or two.

I would buy hand size or smaller. Can you QT several at once? Also, don't say good on me too much. I've been in the hobby for years. This is my first time setting up quarantine. And I have had those disasters before.

I like the standard 29g. Good size, and a lot of cheap equipment made for that specification. I've qt all my tangs in that size, but I usually get small ones no larger than 5 inches. Just make sure to have good flow, and the tang will just swim in the current all day.
