- 10 gallon tank (will be kept bare-bottom)
- ATI Hydro sponge filter #2
- Whisper 10 pump for the sponge filter (right?)
- 50 Watt Jager Submersible Heater
- Prime
- quarantine-specific net
I use all the items mentioned and have recently added a submersible UV as well. The unit cost $50.00 and is compact, has a 9 watt bulb (replacement bulb is $13.00) and is flow adjustable.

I've used it twice without any ill effects to the quarantine process. It runs the entire 14 days of quarantine and then gets 'dry stored' until the next time.

Highly recommended.
