Salinity affecting pods

I was just wondering if a high salinity would affect the growth of pods in my system? I had a problem with my hydrometer and had very high salinity for a long time. I have noticed that I used to have a large amount of pods running around on my live rock but i don't seem to see them anymore. Just wondering if i may have killed them all.

They would be more effected by a sudden change in salinity, than the actual salinity itself, unless it was very high.

Well when I tested my water with my new hyrometer it was pinned high(passed 1.032). I had to remove 10 gallons of water and replace it with fresh water to bring it to 1.024.

The change in sg of .008 points in one water change is not helpful. I don't think you should change salinity more than .002 points in a day.
