This is really irrelevant ,,the tank is infested with ich now...

Take a few pieces of LR from your DT and some sand ,,put it into the QT,,( also use the water from DT).This will save your QT from going through any kind of cycle...Place fish in and start hypo...What is your filtration on your DT(you can use the media from that on QT too?..What do you plan to use on your QT?

Healthy fish can fend of the ich parasite though so it would starve so if it was just one or two fish, those can be taken out only. It's kinda difficult taking out any fish out of a tank bigger than 10g without removing every single rock along with it.....

For my DT, I have a 34 Gallon Red Sea Max, so I have two filter pads in the back of the tank. Water overflows into there.

If I moved a rock and sand onto a QT, wouldn't all of the stuff on it die because of the treatment?

You could use one of those pads in an HOB on your QT...
Yes your rock will die(a small price to pay IMO),,don't use all of it,,the remaining LR in your DT will be fine ,,except now there will be no more ich living in it
Bottom line is ,its your tank ,,take the info we all provided and do what you think is best for you..

I wouldn't put anything in the qt except for some pieces of pvc pipe for the fish to hide in. No sand or rock. You'll be treating the tank anyways so you'll be doing water changes. No need to waste your live rock in my opinion.
