Coralline Algae and Hyposalinity

As I've mentioned on other posts, I have a large tank with 380 lb of LR. In the event that my main gets infected my only treatment option will be Hyposalinity.

I know that Hypo will kill all inverts, and I think my coralline will be affected as well. If I treated for say 4 weeks can I expect that my coralline will recover (more specifically will I see a return of the coralline faster than if I was started with base rock).

Luckily I am just doing my homework upfront and I don't have a problem yet.
