cycling question

Alright guys so I got the freshwater thing down, its pretty simple. Now I want to get into saltwater reef aquarium. I was researching ways to cycle the tank, and a way I want to try is with the cocktail shrimp. If I do that, the rock in the tank, does it have to be cured or not?

If it has not been cured already, this would be a good time. The die off from the rock and the rotting shrimp would cause a good ammonia spike. Just make sure everything tests at 0 before you put anything alive in there.
