Rock

I got my live rock today for my aquarium and i'm liking it. I don't have as much as i thought and i was wondering if i could use some of the rock that i have from another aquarium i had a looong time ago since its just sitting in the garage. WIll it be ok since i'm just started my cycle?

If it was formerly live reef rock, then just wash it off well to get any dirt off, and toss it in. If it was not from a SW reef, then I'd be wary.
