You can avoid the cycle by just letting the rock cure in a seperate container for a while, I use a rubbermaid. That way you let it die off in there before you add it to your tank. Also gives you a chance to get the nasties off of it (if any).

If that is a 72, I'd get atleast 100 lbs of liverock, if not more. The tangs will appreciate it, and so more live rock = more biological filtration, which is good anyways.

I like Fiji or Carribean rock, though the carribean is hard(er) to come by these days. Build it up so that you have some holes in it, but so that it is still stable, and you should be just fine.
