The way I did it was to put all the rock in at the same time (cure and uncured) and do the cycle. After that then I added the sand. While the rock was curing I had all my equipment running, except the lights of course. Before adding the sand everything was turned off and waited for the sand to settle. No problems so far. Hope this helps.
