Tank Update: And Question

So, long story short, LR is in the sump while a leaky bulkhead is replaced and a new stand built for the tank. Rock still looks good, spaghetti worms are out every night tugging at dirt and stuff. Anyways, after 6 days, I have the following:

pH - 8.2
Temp - 81°F
SpecGrav - 1.025
Ammonia - 0ppm
Nitrite - 0ppm
Alkalinity - "Normal" (It's a Red Sea test kit and I hate it)

When I transfer the rock to the tank, do you think I'll have any significant level changes, or would it be safe to add the cleaner crew in a few weeks?

125 gallon saltwater: 55gal sump, 4 Blue-Green Chromis, Purple Tang, True Perc, Firefish, Royal Gramma, 5 Ricordea, Bubble Coral, 15 Pulsing Xenia, Green Star Polyps, Deresa clam, Green-Tip Torch Coral (about 11 "heads"!), Orange Montipora Cap, Purple M. Digitata, Green Slimer Acro. Yongei, 3 Orange M. Digitata, Pink&Green Acro. Millepora

I would give it a week to be sure the tank is stable. After that and all seems fine you should be okay to add a few mobile inverts unless the main tank is being started from scratch. In that case if it was me I would recycle the tank to be sure you have a strong biofilter before adding additional life.
