well, the 50 pounds of uncured rock will have a lot of dead/decaying matter on it and that will cause the ammonia spike.

Plus didn't you list 2 damsels? I wouldn't recommend those fish for the tank and wouldn't recommend using any fish for a cycle, but if you already have them then they would provide a source of ammonia, you will just have to do a lot of water changes to keep the ammonia down and keep it from killing the fish.

You can take all the fish out and put in some pure ammonia (no additives) or some raw shrimp and that would help, but you also have CUC in the tank...
