you should mix the salt water at least a few hours before. So you get it mixed and up to temp.

I should be adding most of my Rock tomorrow, I have the sump measured do it doesn't overflow but when I add the rock and the water raises if I just siphon water out will my salinity stay where I have it?

I just picked up a refractometer today so I could add my salt to get it ready for the rock.

I don't know how it all goes together just yet... 1st salt tank

If you just have to siphon out SW to allow for the water displacement from the rock, it won't effect your salinity. Only if you replace that SW with FW will your salinity go down. I'm looking forward to the finished product! Working out a 75 myself right now.

Do I get my skimmer up and running before I add my rock? To keep the salinity more stable?

Skimmer has nothing to do with salinity. They remove bad stuff from your water. You might aswell get it up and running though cause they have a breakin period.

I want to get your guys take on my wish list of fish so far for my tank:

Pink spotted goby
Bicolor Blenny
Female leopard wrasse
2 false percula clowns
Maybe a manderin(depends if on the amount of pods I have down the line)
And some type of a smaller tang, been seeing a lot of different bristle tooth and kole tangs at my lfs

Also maybe a cleaner shrimp or something and some snails
