About to add the cured live rock to my display tank

Hey guys I have been curing my live rock for 3 weeks come next friday, and I think I am going to add it to the display tank if the ammonia tests are at 0. I just had some questions for removing hitchhikers...

I plan on dipping the rocks in very very salty water and hold them in there for 1 minute, then place it into the display tank. Take a net fish and get out any unwanted hitchhikers and place them in a seperate bucket. Repeat for each piece of rock until it is all in.

Sound good?
