cloudy water after live rock

I bought fully cured live rock from my LFS, and unfortunately i jumped the gun and didnt rinse it off before putting it in my tank, it was in a curing vat so i didnt think it needed to be rinsed again, but now my water is a little cloudy, will this go away during the live rock cycling my tank? if not, what can i do to clarify it?

You should be fine, just give it time to settle. You probably mucked up some sand putting the rock in.

Mine usually settles overnight. If youre using a hang on filter you can run that to speed up the clearing. Not sure what your setup is.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
