I say all at once. If you order online this will also save you money in shiping.

I ordered rocks from lr.com. I got #30 gulf and it arrived well packaged and with little smell. I added it to an existing #40 from lfs and saw no ammonia spike. The life that made it to my house made it through a new tank setup. Their lr is cured. I highly sugest ordering from them. HTH

I was thinking about buying 40 pounds of Gulf from LR.com, and 60 pounds from www.hirocks.com and letting the LR seed the base. 100 pounds for a 60 should be plenty. But definately going to go LR.com for me... going to add it in all at once.
