Once you add live rock to a tank it will cycle. Shoulda Pulitzer it in first then added livestock. You did it kinda backwards. Watch out for the ammonia spike it will most likely kill your livestock.

If the rock was cured you may be ok. Test your water daily for the next week and be ready for a pwc at the first sign of ammonia. Water should clear up in less than 24 hours.
