As long as the ph has hit a steady, safe range (around 8 ) then technically you are good to go and put it in your tank. The saltwater cure is purely just a precautionary, I plan on soaking it in SW
for about a week. Just use some from your partial water change and throw a heater and powerhead in there, that way bacteria etc can get a head start in the rock before you put it in your tank.
