If you don't even have the tank yet, you can leave the rock outside to freeze up (depending on your location of course) and kill off all life on the rock. This will also give you a strong ammonia spike for the cycle to begin. Shipping the rock over night out of water is going to give you plenty of die off anyway most likely, but it may not kill everything.
