You don't need to do a PWC in the QT to remove any copper from the fish.
Just make sure that the temp. and PH are the same and then add the fish at the amounts that you stated. I would not put any water from the QT into your 75g.
One more thing...If the QT needs a pwc then don't forget to do that first.
