well they call it a QT for a reason... id say keep the water seperate.. unless you mean some of the 150g tank water.. then yes that would work. you would have the correct temperature and water conditions. it would be less stressful on the fish that way

Well without knowing what fungus.. kinds of fish.. and all the water stats.. no i couldnt tell you. and if your setting up the qt tank because 1 fish came down with something.. the other fish will have already been exposed to it. the only thing you can hope is that it hasnt spread as of yet.

Usually fungal and viral infections go away on their own with improved water quality. Start doing 20% water changes every 3-4 days.

No dont treat the whole tank. Try the frequent PWC`s and you might see a difference.

This person gave you some very bad advice. IMO I would not do that. It might stress them out more. Keep your fish stress free and maintain good water quality.
