I have another question concerning a QT tank. You recommended to keep a sponge in the sump so that when you need to set up a QT tank, you can add the sponge which will have good bacteria in it. However I've also read that a sponge can be a breeding ground for bad bacteria and that you should not keep on in the sump for more than a couple of days.
What am I missing here?
