The "dry" rock should begin to show signs of life in 6 to 10 weeks.

I personally add sand first, but many people add it last. Personal preference.

was a personal "gut feeling" to add the sand first....will do so once the water clears from the salt and the level and temp is good

I still had that piece of live rock that had a ton of zoanthyds, and a ton of aptasia on it, it's been out of water for about a month, i gave it a soaking and added it in the new 65 G, the water smells this morning, I am assuming this is the die off......question is, If I add some live rock from my other tank, won't it die in the new tank?

If your ammonia levels is elevated then you will get some die off, yes. That being said, i would add the live rock now. We are looking at long term goals, not short term inconveniences.
