? on new tank....

Is it normal to see NH3 at 8.0 24hrs after set up? I used ro/di water and have live rock in the tank. Only set up one other saltwater tank and never seen NH3 this high. Could it be the live rock curing?

No nothing in the tank. Just didn't think the cycle would start so soon. I guess its the live rock?
