I read your quarantine post and I see why you can have a 30+ day quarantine with very little fish death. I would love to have a ready made planted tank for QT. My only thought would be how do you sterilize the tank after QT if you have a major outbreak? I guess that would mean to dump everything out, bleach, and start again.
