I would say yes from the die off on the lr. Does your tank already have lr in it? has it already cycled?

In a young tank I would expect a small ammonia spike, but nothing extreme. Be prepared to do a water change if needed.

MAYBE a small spike. Like Lando said as long as your ready to d oa water change after a day or so you would be fine. their rock is shipped wet and in water so little die off should be expected.
