Thanks everyone! My last question, do you think it is ok to add the rock while the tank is in hypo mode or should I wait until I bring it back to normal salinity?

you should be fine in hypo modebut if you are worried, start an ammonia cycle in a 5 gallon bucket and then add the rock it never hurts to start a cycle and let the rock build up a colony.

thats pretty much what i did and i'm more them pleased with the outcome. i had no spike in ammonia and now it gives my inverts more places to hide
