I would suggest curing/cycling this live rock in a separate container, just like you would a new aquarium. Most live rock has substantial amounts of dead matter on it that will raise ammonia levels.

If there is nothing alive in the tank, then you can cycle your tank with the live rock.

Thank you very much everyone! I'll put it in a different aquarium first to cycle it and then put it in my aquarium!
