Is it possible to add live rock later? Because i think we could find 60$ before this person sells out. I dont want to cause a mini cycle though!

You would have to cure it for a couple of weeks in a separate container before adding it so that there isn't any die off to start a mini cycle.

Basically you can add as much dry Rick whenever you want because it doesn't have any die off.

Live Rick has to be cured befor added to an established system.
