This post is completely incorrect. When you don't have a marine background, it is very risky to make any assumptions.

Live rock is normally put into marine tanks from day 1, assisting with the maturity process.

Live Rock doesn't die unless removed from the tank and let dry out. Live Rock also has die off when in the Curing process, but the entire rock does not die. White is normal coloring for Live rock thas is being cured, it will get some nasty black on it from die off, but thats about it, then it blooms with life.
