QT startup questions


New member
I just want make sure i got this right, please comment if you have a better way to set up a QT tank.

10 gal tank
no sand
no rock
couple pvc fittings
HOB wheel filter?
heater if needed

will a clamp on style light be OK? also what is the best medication to add to the qt for new fish coming in? can i just add tank water from a water change? do i need to cycle? what do you guys do with the QT after the fish go into the DT? leave it going empty or drain it?what are the maintence on a QT?
