Live Rock - Can I Add More?

Ok so at the present I dont have enough moulah to stock my 75gal aquarium with live rock. I'm about to prepare the water and have it sit in the tank for a week or two getting the hang of doing some of the basic tests. I plan on ordering my LR online, but not all at once. Probably going to order half sometime next week and start my cycle. Now, when I add the second half, am I going to have to go through the entire cycleing process? The liverock im ordering is from liveaquaria.com, a 45lb box of Fiji rock that comes cured.

There will be some die-off during shipping so you might see a mini-cycle when you add the second half.

I agree. There will be dieoff if shipped. If you get it at your LFS or cure it yourself then it should be OK.

re-cure it outside the tank. Your other option is base rock

Around my area there are always people taking down tanks and selling off their live rock usually between 3 and 5 a lb I see it on a couple of local forums and on craigslist regularly.
