I guess i stand corrected. I've never heard of it being sold by the piece. By the look of the tank your going to need quite a bit more rock in there. If i had to take a stab at it i would say double or a smig more then you have in there now. Someone else take a guess too though cuz i'm far from poisitive

I'd say easily 3x the amount your currently have. Don't be afraid to lean it against the back side of the tank either. Keep 2.5" away from both sides for easier cleaning with a magnet. Rock is gonna give you more surface area for that beneficial bacteria to live. Cuts nitrates too.

Gonna do reef or fish only?

You need 2x - 3x more rock. Get mostly base rock and some additional LR. Put the base rock under what you already have.
