Question Hypo Treatment

Alright I am trying to get the fax right on this method? First do I lower the salinity before adding the fish into the QT Tank or should I add the fish then lower the Salinity? Second Do I set the salinity to 1.009 or 1.010?
LMK

Thanks

I would start with the same parameters as the DT and lower to 1.009, slowly.

You can lower the SG by up to .005 a day (or .0025 every 12 hours) but you can only raise it half as quickly (.002-.003 a day).
