That's an easy question for the more expert (with more experience with live rocks) i plan to add 3/4kg just for some fresh biodiversity inside my 100G tank, i already have 20kg of dead rock + 5kg of live rocks since the beginning (6 months in), can I skip the curing process for this small amount of extra rocks and get more biodiversity or i end up with just having an ammonia/no2 spike any way? (that's the reason behind curing fresh live rock i know)< <3

How bad it will be depends on where you get it and how long it is out of the water in transport.
I always put it straight into the tank and deal with any ammonia spikes with Seachem Prime since the ultimate goal is to keep as much alive as I can.
