With base rock it would still be a good idea to buy a small amount of live rock to seed you base rock so it can become live rock over time with the bacteria needed to act as the biological filter.

It does take some time for the BR to become LR but I'm not positive about how long it takes. You could even just buy a pound of LR but it will take longer to seed the BR.
