Question Finally cycled....I think?

I've had my tank set up for about a month now, 29 gallon. Before I had live rock i had two damsel deaths. After some advice on the deaths I did a 50% water change and bout 15 pounds of live rock, I know I could still use atleast another ten pounds. I recently yesterday bought some snails, Astrea and Nassa. They seem to be doing good and on the live rock there was a little brown crab.

Is he good or bad?

A very purple piece of live rock maybe half pound started to discolor in a spot, I have one 20 watt 24" Penn-Plax tri-lux fluorescent light, is this light good enough for the live rock?

And do you think it is okay for introduce fish again? I don't have any water parameters except temp is 79 and salinity is 1.024

To be able to tell if the cycle is over we need ammonia, nitrites and nitrate readings.
