    no, dont let it bubble up under the live rock as it can kill and beneficial organisms and the likes of sponges etc.

    Have it so that it is not touching the rock

    You should also “tumble” live rock in the tank water before its in it’s final resting place to allow any trapped bubbles to escape

    cheers

    was the rock cured or is it raw live rock? You need to keep an eye on the water parameters during this time as the live rock can pull off some pretty nasty surprises depending on what is on it
