I'm confused. Move your rock and starfish to the QT?
I assumed you would move your fish ONLY to the QT, and do hypo there. Then you'd leave your rock/sand and inverts and starfish in the main and let it go fishless. The hypo will kill the ich on the fish in the QT, and the fact your main tank is fishless for 6-8 weeks will kill the ich in the main.
Don't do hypo on anything but fish - they won't make it.
