I would use a 20 gallon all in one for a QT or just a simple tank with a hang on. Pvc pipe for structure. And hard bottom. Just a simple setup on a independent system.

I follow these guides for equipment and practices fairly closely and have had excellent success -

Biggest advice I can give is to get the biggest QT tank you possibly can, struggling to keep ammonia levels down in a small tank can be challenging and deadly for fish.

Here's my (empty, ready for new fish!) 55gal QT using a canister filter...

If your treating any medications wont the skimmer pull it out? Also careful with the canister,won't it trap all the medications and or causing sickness bacteria? I'd probably give it a deep cleaning everytime you introduce a new fish to qt.good luck either way.lmk if it works because I have a few canisters and a 55 I could use to make a qt
