hi pierce
a qt tank should be specifically for qt, there whenever u need it. it does not need a skimmer/ocean/live rock or substrate. all it needs is a heater, sponge filter, a light and some caves for the fish to feel secure ( i use pvc elbows). any tank is fine (50 litres is a good size), the one in aldi looks ideal. all the best

hi pierce,i'd say it would be fine.I use clay pots in my tank as they are inert and don't react with the salt water.A heater,internal filter is all thats needed.Keep the lighting to a minimum to keep the fish happy,they won't be there long term anyway.

I called Lidl trying to find out what quantities each store would have but all the person could tell me (unconvincingly)was that \"each store would have at least one\". I didn't like the odds...
