I added live rock three times after setting up my tank. Twice because i wanted better filtration and once for decorating purpose.
The key is to buy fully cured rock preferably one with coralline. To avoid die off have your LFS
put newspaper in their saltwater and then wrap live rock with it. Doing so will keep live rock wet or moist. If fully cured live rock should not adversely affect your tank.
I use a styrofoam box for transporting live rock and putting wet newspaper over it.
