Well I haven't put it in my tank yet...glad I talked to you. Now, is it a bad thing to use it for QT so that I can actually use the salt and acclimate them (fish) as normal from QT to the main? I would of course cycle the QT first.

Actually it won't matter much as long as the fish are properly acclimated to the main when ready. If you plan on using the Oceanic for the QT and something different with the main then I would acclimate them over a weeks time.
Using small amounts of water from the main, do small daily water changes each day for a week until the two chems are alike. Then the acclimation time from QT to main will not be long at all.

Personally I wouldn't go through the hassle though.

Cheers
Steve
