It looks nice, how much you want for it haha jk. Though I agree with carey, you should put it in the tank to help the cycle.

Ok so I just tried the PVC pipe trick getting the sand in my tank and I only got about 1/5 of the sand in and it's so cloudy I can't see a thing. Is this ok for my fish?!? How am I supposed to get all the sand in. It's going to take a month!

You should rinse the sand. I also had an extremely cloudy tank when I first put my sand in. It doesn't effect the fish and will clear up in a few hours

Yes. Your "cured" rock will still have die off and you can place it in an already cycling tank.
