Liverock Day One

Ok guys I added my substrate and liverock yeterday and finally the milky cloud is starting to subside..Still cloudy but Im sure over time that will pass. I had a bare tank..I added 6" of dsb southdown playsand. I purchased from reeferrocks.com(see my other post on thisA+).50lbs of base rock and 50lbs of liverock..I have a 75gallon tank...

here is my question..Obviuosly i didnt add enough liverock and I have created a pretty cool aquascape but its missing Id say a couple of nice big pieces...20lbs or so..I dont want to go through online for 20lbs cuz of shipping so do you think it would be ok to purchase 20lbs(or less) at a lfs if i can find the right price......and put it in even though the tank is cycling..Obviuosly that is cured rock and i have uncured in there...
Forgive the ignorance!!

Thanks
