Quarantine tanks

This is my QT setup, the tub on the right has a male cambodian CT who has/had popeye for the last 3 weeks and however long he has been at petsmart until i rescued him, his eyes are still swollen, he has completed a maracyn treatment and is now being treated with epsom salt and is improving slowly. The tub on the left has a cambodian CT female who developed swim bladder disorder, she is being treated with epsom salt. Inside the tub is another tupperware tub with a green dragon CT female that i bought yesterday, im floating the tupperware tub with the other female because i dont have another heater and these females will be placed into a sorority together within the next 2 weeks.
let me know what you think! also, if anyone knows why the water is yellow (it has IAL and oak leaf) please let me know

Seems Like a low cost set up that provides plenty of room and water volume. The ability to float another container makes for keeping multiple fish in Qt. Might have to take a few tips away from this one. good job!

it's yellow because it has the leaves in it releasing tannins.

i thought it was supposed to be brown though, so yellow is still from the tannins?
