Yes,you definitely need at least another 50 lbs.Get the base rock since you already have live rock.It will become live quickly.IMO
the biggest mistake people make when starting out is not getting enough rock per gallon.I know it is expensive to start with but it is worth it. I have been doing saltwater for seven years now and learned my lesson the hard way when I first started.
Also,research a lot on your own but be careful taking advice from individuals who have only been doing saltwater aquariums for a few months but are so quick to give advice like they are experts.I don't claim to be one but can state what I know from personal experience.
