Put 'em under a microscope is how I do it. You could also use a small loupe from a camera store (I got mine at a locally owned hardware store--they carry everything).

It also may be that, since you've added quite a bit of water volume it'll take a while for them to reproduce enough to clear that volume of water, especially at your high salinity (with greatly reduced reproduction). I'd add some freshwater to try to reduce the salinity, if I were you. I'd aim to go down a few points per day until you were at 1.014-1.017, depending on your target water where you want to use the rots.
