well we put the live sand on top of the not live sand. eventually it will all become live.

Just pour both and stir around with your hand.

I recommend adding it to the top so the benefical part can make immediate contact with the tank itself. It will quickly seed the rest. get LR from several places if possible as the rock will contain different organisms. the more varied the better.
