Ok guys i know this is off topic, anyone who could give me an answer on this one, i would appreciate it.

I just got my biocube and currently cycling it with dead shrimp. Dry Live Rock "REEF SAVER/PUKANI" are some of the things I'll be buying tomorrow. If I put the dry live rock in the tank thats in the midst of cycling will it lengthen the cycling period?

Nope. It will just give the bacteria more room and places to grow.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Not really, I would just do your top offs with salt water and it will fix itself in a few days.

We'll see how cheap the koralias are, might get a set of backups. I plan on using my 750's in the 90g.

Actually their Pukani rock isn't base so you'll have a ammonia spike.
