I am with Lee on this. I feel that it is better to keep a cycled quarantine tank running at all times. I think you can keep the biofilter active by just dropping a small portion of food (don't overdo and pollute the tank) a few times a week. The food will break down without being digested by fish.
I distinctly remember that thread about putting crushed garlic in the water. I think the rest of us pretty much concluded that it was a bad idea. The person that suggested it was losing fish while they did it.
