    I'm only going to need 10 or 15lbs but want it to have plenty of life, rubble ok. Uncured preferred, but cured with lots of life ok.

    I am new into the saltwater and was wondering if I could get some live rock and majority dry rock and put it into a newly established tank to start the process of making the dry live? Would this be fine to do on the first day of setting up the tank or should I wait?
