Just added live rock & now the water turned a bit yellow

I just started a 55 gallon saltwater tank 3 weeks ago and added live rock about a week ago and now my water is a bit tinted from the live rocks. I have not yet done a water change yet since I'm still in the cycling period. I was wondering how would I get rid of the yellowish tint in my tank? Should I do a water change? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Running an activated carbon filter will remove the coloration in the water. If your still cycling I honesty wouldnt worry to much about the color of the water at this point since your going to probably do a fairly sizable water change after the cycle anyway.
