I would probably wait to add the live sand until the live rock cures, but that is just me. If you cure you lr with the old castle sand, there is not much need for LS, maybe a cup here and there from different tanks to increase the diversity of the sand fauna, but the critters on the rock will colonize the dry sand and make it LS.
