Yeah. A big part of my plan to cure outside of the tank is to have time to rebuild the sump and cleanup the stand. I need to do a good deal of sanding on the stand and then put on a couple coats of poly. The sump is also at least a weekend project, so that puts me at least a couple of weeks down the road.

I'll probably end up splitting the difference. Chances are I'll start the rock in the tub for a couple of weeks and then move it over to the tank as soon as I have the tank ready. This should allow me to avoid the worst of the stink, but still get some cycling benefit out of the rock.

Now I'm going to have to start looking into exactly how to do the aquascaping. I'm a bit paranoid about a rock fall cracking the bottom of the tank and coming home to a massive mess. I'm thinking about putting a piece of acrylic or something on the bottom under the rock just as an extra precaution.

Another option you can look into is reef safe epoxy which will allow you to epoxy your rocks so theres no danger of the falling!
