Curing LR

I picked up 60lbs of mixed tonga and figi yesterday, I wanted to wait till I got my tank to let it cure in, but at a limited time $2 a pound offer I couldnt wait
I have them in 2 styrofoam boxes, one with 2 powerheads, the other with 1 powerhead and an air wand. I mixed up a salt mix last night at about sg 021-22 at about 80F, I just used regular tap water. I put some acintics over them as well. So, did I do ok?
Now, when will I change the water? And should I move the rocks around so they all get exposed to light and the powerheads?

anyone???

Also, there is some seaweed still on the rock, should I try to take that off now, or let it die off. But will it die with lighting over it?

Oh, and if I put "regular" lighting on it, will that cause nuisance algae? I just 110 watts of acintics over them right now. In only 2 days, I can start to see little pink patches. pretty cool I read, I think on this site that acintics were best to encourage coraline growth, just making sure.
