i think the bubbles is just nitrogen rising to the surface, from the bacteria converting whatever it's feeding off of now. i wouldn't worry about it.
that coralline will probably die from the cycle, but again, don't worry, those rocks will be a totally different color eventually.

I agree with abdhalim... A couple more days just to be sure. Also, you might want to read some articles on cycling...they are very helpful and one of the best places to start.

Shrimp's back in the tank; I've got my powerhead, filter (no charcoal, just sponge material) and heater going. I'm going to test the water in another two or three days. I did see some really thin worms emerge from the rocks. Spaghetti worms? Tube worms? Anyway, I've got all the time in the world to cycle. Thanks again to everyone that added comments.

No prob. Welcome to AA. You're on the right track. No need to cut it up. I placed it in a mesh bag. I've got a 120g with a 30g sump so I went with three raw shrimp.
