Getting live rock today!

So today I'm getting 100 pounds of live rock and I was wondering if anyone does anything special to their live rock before they put it in their tanks.

The live rock I picked out was mostly on the bottom of the LFS aquarium and had some sand, ect on it. Didn't want the extra "stuff" floating around in my aquarium.
