How should I prepare live rock to go into my aquarium

My aquarium is still cycling and has no fish in it yet. I am getting ready to add my first batch of live rock. The live rock is cured .I read that I can just put it in right away since my tank is still cycling. Is this true? 8)

Yep, Place it in ASAP. It will be fine....

If anything, it is going to help the process of cycling along....

Yes it is, however I might do a 50% waterchange prior to adding the rock. The reason being, if the rock is fully cured, the ammonia and nitrite levels in the tank may cause die off on the rock. The rock, if fully cured should be able to handle the rest of the ammonia/nitrite and you have a cycled tank
