How do you know when base is live?

So I have a fairly new setup. It's been going now for roughly 5 months and every thing seems to be going well. Or are they?.. I went with the mix rock when I did my setup, 30 pounds base limestone and 30 pounds of live rock. While the live rock looks amazing the base was not so great. Not very porous at all. After 5 months the base has become alot better looking in terms of looks but to my untrained eye it seems like nothing is spreading from my live rock to base rock. Everyone that I ask about this says that as long as my water parameters are good that I shouldn't worry and it may take years for it to look like it's live. Although I do have a lot of small dark brown spots growing on every thing, guess I should be happy with that at least! Lol!
