i bought more live rock but it came from a guys sump w/ no light. should i scrub and clean it in saltwater before putting it in my display tank?

my tank is still cycling if that changes anything.

a quick swish in salt water should be enough to get some detritus off of it

I would just rinse in some WC water and stick it in.

If it has sponges, tunicates etc. I would put that in shaded areas instead of blasting it.

Cool. Rinse in saltwater it is.

Also examine it real well for any signs of aptasia. It always seems to be on the rock I put in my sump
