Question Add cured or uncured live rock?

I started my first cycle about 5 days ago with a decent amount of cured live rock (35 lbs or so), but i have the opportunity to get more at a really good price this week only at my LFS..Would it effect my first cycle to add more live rock?

It can't hurt and may help, depending what they've done to cure it. Go for it.

also 5 days isnt too far into your cycle to worry about changing anything...

If you are adding cured LR you wont see much of a mini cycle at all. You would definitely be good to go.

Thank you jaybird! which macro algae are you refering to the plant matter on my live rock? Or was it something on my glass? Sorry im still a newbie and suck at spotting stuff like that!
