Got my LR thismorning......questions

Ok it's been a while.......I just got my Marshall Islands LR in just now & it's all in the tank. Beautiful I'll add. Should I go ahead & aquascape it to it's final resting position now or leave it all spread out on the bottom of the tank till it's done curing then set it up?

Next, I also have 60 lbs of sand (not live) standing by to add to the tank after the rock is set up. (This depends on the 1st answer) Do I add the sand before or after curing & does it make a difference since it's dry sand?

I would put the sand in first as the cycling process will help the sand as well. Good bacteria also grows in the sand bed.

That's what I was thinking but I figured I better get some opinions before going any further. Thanks.
