I asked how long it would take because I bought some base rock as well as some live rock and he said it could take up to a year for the live rock to seed the base rock.

it can be a couple months for it to really get going but it will be helped if you get a small (under 10 lbs) bag of live sand and add it with the base rock to help seed it faster
