Confused

I thought to cycle I'd add my live rock and shrimp and let it cycle, I have now been reading all the hitchhikers in my live rock will die during the cycle?? I'm looking forward to seeing the jokers the most so what should I do?

I had a few hermits that hitched a ride on my live rock and they survived.

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

Just about everything survived my cycle including things like cabbage leather, green star polyps, xenia, mushrooms and brittle stars.
