Since its been moved, any of you fish Doc's have any input. I more or less want to know...

if it could have just been a random ammonia spike that has come and gone caused by the introduction of the rock.

Since everything shows normal if that means I can get some more fish or should I wait awhile to make sure it stabilizes?

IMO that`s what it was. If the rock was exposed to air for several minutes or longer then you would have had some die off causing an ammonia spike. You also would have lost a bunch of you nitrifying bacteria. Hopefully the worst is over and like you said just let it stabilize.
