You should put it in a rubbermaid tub or something similar and cure the LR. We have an article on curing LR in our SW articles section.

I found someone getting rid of 140 salt tank and have the rock cured on 2tubes. Someone said u shouldn't add it all at one time to tank if the rocks cured and the water the rocks in test good for nitrates. And Cal do u have to add slow

Is this a new tank. Do you still need to cycle? If so, you can use the live rock to cycle your tank and use it as an ammonia source.
