Another live rock question

Ok I'm currently putting cured LR in my tank. Right now I have ten pounds, and I was thinking about thirty is my goal. The main reason is just for added filtration. So would thirty pounds be suffice for my tank?

And another question. I've heard LR will grow over regular rock you have in your tank. Is that true? If it is I'll leave that rock in the tank, but if it's not I'll take it out. TIA!

30-40lbs would be good. Be sure to cure it first! As per your post, it sounds as if you know that, but just in case.

One more quick question. Should I put LR over the regular rock or if it's beside it will that work?
