Adding LR

I am now in the process of cycling my 72gal bowfront. And half my LR from my biocube (about 20 pounds) has corals attached to the rocks. After my tank cycles I was going to add the corals with the LR. Will this cause a huge spike in water parameters?

no as long as you cycle the 72G first then add the rocks with coral attached from your already established tank everything should be fine

Excellent thank you! How long should I wait? Or just right after the tank is cycled?
