Live Rock or Dead Rock?
 
I recently purchased a 110 gal saltwater setup from a friend of a friend and he included 5 - 5gal bucket of Live Rock. The thing is that the tank and rock have not been operational for the last few years. So the question is what do I need to do to get the Live Rock going again?

Put it next to live rock and over time and the bacteria will transfer over.

So do I need to do the curing process like normal or is it Ok to start out the tank with it in there from the start.

If it was stored dry, then there is no "live". This means that you won't need to cure it.
