No live rock in the qt tank. Any medications that you may have to use will most likely kill the living organisms on the live rock.

PVC is a good idea for fish that like to hide and it should make it less stressful for them. The equipment you listed should work fine for a quarantine tank. What kind of fish do you need to quarantine?
