Adding Live Rock

I have a 135g tank. As you can see I have a lot of skeleton coral and red horns. They have all built up a lot of bb, but I'm thinking of adding a few small pieces of live rock behind the coral. Advice or comments please... Thanks!

Very nice!I love the colors. I have been told that you do need some lr to help with filtration.It is also helpful because it gives your fish a place to hide.This website gives info on curing lr:Reef Aquarium Care: Live Rock and Live Sand Acclimation and Curing Guide

Opinions seems to differ on how much lr,some say a lbs per gal and some say less because you need to think about the amt of livestock you want.This was advice given to me when I asked the same question for my 36 gal tank:The Todd said: 30lbs of live rock should work for a 36g tank. To cut costs, remember that you can buy a little live rock and then do the rest base rock and it will eventually become "live". Hope this helps!
