Rocks shoud be cycled at the same time though. Make sure they sit at the bottom and not on sand.

Why do the rocks need sit on the bottom of the tank? Could it create a dead spot if there on the sand?

If the sand shifts, be it from power head or sand sifting fish the rock can fall and break the bottom glass. This is why it is best practice to out the rocks in first, or even use egg crate to line the bottom prior to putting in the rock and sand.

If you want to use more of rocks surface, you can elevate them with egg crate on top of 1/2" PVC couplings.You just need enough sand to cover them.

I took a piece of 1/2 plexy and drilled holes in it, then glued rods of different heights into them. With all the different heights, it gives you more flexibility on rock placement
