Cool kio. I have a question on qt that I made a thread about but you may know the answer. How are you seeding the qt tank without the ick being carried over? Is the qt in hypo as well?

Took a couple of rubble rock from sump. QT is not in hypo, but if needed, can be in no time due to nothing being in it.

Need advice... My DT is in hypo and having issues. Should I raise the salinity or just do pwc daily. Ammonia is a lil high... About 10. Did a pwc and brought it down a lil. Has yellow tang, watchman goby and eel in it. No signs of ick, just the other issue.

I could be wrong but your beneficial bacteria could be dying due to the extremely low salinity. If brackish water is around 1.015 or lower, you could be looking at a different type of nitrifying bacteria that you don't quite have yet. I had read that the last stage of hypo shouldn't go below 1.009. I'm not an expert in hypo because I have never performed it, but from what I have read this is the best answer I could come up with.

I would just do a water change with hypo water. Fresh salt should kick the bacteria in action

The bacteria tends to go into a dormant state . It can die but I didn't experience that with my tank .
