SG/Temp for QT ?

My main is 480 L, currently 1.023 25°, which I want to stock FOWLR.

I've setup a 250L QT and wondered what would be right SG and temp. I'm thinking that slightly less saline would be easier on the fish, maybe 1.019-1.020 and 25°. I'll be quarantining fish and inverts.

Any suggestions would be welcome

Not sure about the inverts, it probably depends on what they can take, as far as SG and temp.
I looke at a few inverts and this is about where they should be:
sg 1.023-1.025

I would think QTing them at different times would work out a lot better, since fish tend to be better equipped at lowering of SG. I'm sure some one with more experience will pop in and be able to help.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
