I have a dry rock question I might as well ask here instead of starting a new thread. I have a 46G bow front and m awaiting my order of 45lbs dry rock. I planning on making a reef tank. Do I need to add some live rock with the dry or will they dry become live over time? If I need to add LR how much?

It will become live over time as you cycle your tank.

Yep, you don't need any ocean rock to seed it. Bacteria will grow on the dry rock providing you add an ammonia source to start the cycle. If you want things like coralline algae, you need but to take some shavings from someone's tank, and sprinkle it in the water.
