Reintroducing Fish From QT Tank

I have some fish in in my QT tank due to an ICH outbreak. I plan to leave my display tank empty for 6 weeks. How may fish can be put back in the main tank at one time? Can all five be added at once or should it be done more slowly? Assume the main display (65 gallon) will have good chemical balances at that time.

I would feel confident in adding them all back on the same day. Expecially if you continue to lightly 'feed' the main tank.

Please make sure to acclimate them to the display tank before putting them back in. You don't want to successfully treat them only to have them die due to thermal, salinity or ph shock.
