The damsels stay in there to keep the bacteria alive and if they get anything they are cheap also I have a 20 gallon

If you were to take a small piece of base rock, put it in your DT for a month, then move it to the QT would that help to set up the BB in the canister filter?

No you get the dip at a LFS or order it on line.I use Seachem Reef dip coral disinfectant.You add it to a container with some of your tank water and place the coral in there a short while.It will kill any bad hitchhikers such as flatworms or red bugs etc.
