Looks good. Just remember to add fish one at a time and give things a few weeks before adding another one.

Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com!!!
Live rock is the best biological filtration media available for your SW tank. Basically, the rock is so porus and has such a large amount of surface area on it that is is great for cultivating benificial bacteria that helps break down pollutants in the tank. It is also the foundation of reef tanks. Here is more info...
