If you're using uncured rock i would still throw in an additional ammonia source such as an uncooked shrimp or two depending on the size of your tank. I'm not sure if the source provided by the uncured live rock is enough to last the duration of the cycle, the bacteria grow very slowly and need the source to develop.

Redo.

Ok, heres my question, how big are the standard size fiji live rocks? Does anyone here have these types of live rock? If so, could you give me an estimate as to how big these pieces are? Im really not trying to get anything to small, and not too big.

There are no set sizes. the rock i received from online vendors came in all different shapes and sizes ranging from 2lbs to 14lbs each. If you're ordering online some vendors allow you to pick a particular piece, unfortunately that is a fee service. I found online to be roughly 75% cheaper than any of my LFSs.
