I would test the tub like it is its own tank. When its cycled through the ammonia and nitrite, you can add it. If its cured, shouldn't take too long.

and if i did this with the rock, would i be able to add it any time? as in after i get my fish and everything? my tank is almost done cycling right now, but i need to get some liverock in there. So, i guess what i'm trying say is...if i let the live rock go thru its "cycle" in the tub, would i be able to add it to an already cycled tank with no problems?

thanks

Yes. Once the rock is cycled, it is officially "cured" and can be added to an established tank.

Chances are, if the rock as been at the LFS for a while, it is already cured. However, its still a good practice to cure it again before adding to an established tank. If your tank is still cycling, you can add it now. If there is any die-off (and depending how much you add), it might prolong your cycle slightly.
