    Hello and welcome

    You can add your live rock now. Just check out the links given above to understand the cycle period.
    Only problem you could have with adding your rock now is water displacement. You might need to siphon some water out.

    The sooner you add the live rock the better. Try and add all the live rock you need now as each time you add there will be a mini cycle due to die-off from the rock. Good luck and enjoy and remember to take it slow and do your research.
