I would recomend curing the rock on a seperate vesel, with good water flow, and a protein skimmer. The bottom line here is that all live rock that spends some time out of water experiences some die off. If for whatever reason doing this is not an option for you, then you may be able to get away with adding small amounts to a large system. Adding one rock at a time to a large body of water such as a 90 gallon + system will be ok if done slowly. Do keep in mind that if the rock is being delivered to you directly from the ocean and is not pre cured, you may risk adding unwanted critters to your main display.
