The best way is to feed your fish, wait a couple of days and test for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate. If they are still at 0 more then likely your tank is cycled. I would not add any more turbo snails as they tend to be the bulldozers of the snail family...Knocking everything over and causing landslides that may kill something in your tank. As M stated on the dark side we do things slowly.

Update:
Went back to my LFS and confirm that the 35 lb LR was cured, and I can't stop myself and got another nice looking piece LR (7lb). The owner advise me to wait also, but he say I can get a Lawnmower Blenny and some polyps, and mushroom.

So I added:
1 lawnmower blenny
1 pink star polyps
1 green mushroom
1 flower pot

Flower Pot Coral - True Red

The flower pot coral is very difficult to keep. IMO it`s one of those that`s best by experienced reefers or left in the ocean.

+1 to melosu. Flower pots are mean and will die off at the slightest change of parameters. Leaving you with a big hole in your pocket and a giant mess in your tank.

Pics though of your new stuff. I dont know if i have ever seen pink star polyps.

I agree, is there anyway you can take it back and trade it for an easier coral since your tank is so new.
