Hey, I've had my tank cycling for a while now with live rock and I was wondering what some good fish are to put in there to help to finish the cycling process.

None! Let it finish on it's own.

None are needed you can always use a raw cocktail shrimp or if you just want some fish in there damsels are a cheap fish often used for cycling tanks. However those guys can be tricky to her out of your tank when you want to remove them.

Fish don't finish a cycle, they start the cycle. If your ammonia and nitrite levels have not returned to 0, no fish is safe to put in the tank at this point. It's a waiting game for now or you can introduce some live sand to help speed up the cycling process. Just about anything else you do will be like putting a little band aid on a huge wound, mostly ineffective
Feel free to PM me if you have any questions on tank cycling
