The filter is an aquaclear 30, I had it running on the main tank for 2 weeks before. And when the QT is not in use it will go back on the main tank so it is always ready to use.

I once saw a demo tank at my LFS. There was a fish bowl in the tank, with a plastic duck and some other stuff I don't remember, and a single goldfish, that made a nice funny scene!
