Jeff can I ask what the significance of the 1.019 in a qt tank is

That is the salinity which ich will not survive. That is another way of treating fish in QT without using medication or copper.

That is incorrect the salinity needs to be between 1.008 and 1.009

My sources says 1.019 and at present I have one fish in QT and doing good. The 1.009 salinity is almost fresh water. Do you think your salt water fish will survive in a month with it and have you ever tried it?

True hypo is 1.008 - 1.009. Anything above 1.010 ich can survive . I treat all my fish with hypo at 1.008 and I have done this many times. The beneficial bacteria doesn't die but goes into a dormant state. Doing a pwc with fresh mixed sw will kick it back into action .
