Depends on how much LR and LS you put in there. But, no it won't take 4 weeks to cycle using your DT stuff.

Using the LR and LS from my Main tank won't bring this problem to the QT tank?
OH by the way I lost another Clown last night. Only one small file fish and one Cardinal left so I'm affraid they are doomed also. MAKES ME SICK TO MY STOMACH
Will this problem kill the corals that I have?

Gee man that sucks big time. Normally its better to just leave 'em but at this point looks like there going to die in there. Is the water cloudy in there. If so that could be indicative of a bacterial issue. I'm not sure what I'd do at this point. They're probably already pretty stressed but I would almost think battling your qt water quality is as likely to save them as keeping them in the display. I'm not sure if there are viruses fish can get that will kill them or any crazy weird diseases. Maybe totally go through everything in the tank for water parameters, temp, anything like that that could be out of place. Sorry you're losing fish. Wish I could help more.

The water is very clear and all paramiters are ok except for high calcium and starting Amonia which I assume is from the dead fish

If the fish are just dying, its usually just kept to them.
As far as moving the disease to the DT, yes it will, unless you have to QT in Hypo or have it medicated to start with. If using medication I would not use your DT or LS to seed the QT.
Are there any visible signs of anything wrong on the fish? You would not belive how many fish I have lost, just because of nothing. They dont' acclimate, it happens. I've had Clowns Copper Butterflys go 2-3 weeks, then just die. And have lost no other fish. But I did not add all my fish at once.

I'd be more worried about your ALk and CA killing your corals, not what the fish possibly had.

I added first time 1 clown 1 Blennie and 1 cardinal then two weeks later I added a nother clown, another cardinal, a filefish and a yellow tang, two weeks later a butterfly that I don't remember what kind and it dies about 6 days later so I added the coral beauty that lived about a week and a half but wouldn't eat the food the other fish were eating. It pecked at the rocks but wouldn't eat the food I put in. About 2 days after it died a cardinal dies the a couple days the tang dies and the Blennie is missing. Next day a clown dies. All the fish except for the coral beauty were very active and eating fine the night before I found them dead the next morning.
Does this make any sense to you? I assume that the coral beauty was sick and contaminated tha tank but at the same time when I put it in there it was very active and looked like it was trying to find something to eat by pecking at the rocks. IDK! What do you get from this info?

This is just a thought but couldn't the alkalinity being off cause pH swings? Seems like an awful lot of fish within a short period to try and all get settled in. Could just be like reef said that they didn't adjust. How big is your tank?

Well you aren't really over stocked for that size tank. I don't think I would put more in there than that though. Oh I thought you meant it was 4 dkh. Nvm then that seems good. Honestly man I'm at a loss on this one. I've flipped through many a thread of people just losing seemingly healthy fish randomly. You unfortunately could be experiencing one of these crazy happenings. These other guys on here are really knowledgeable so if anyone can solve it they can. Wish I could be of more help. I hate to say it but maybe wait and see if any more die and if they do move what's left to the qt.
