Seems good your live rock could have had minimal die off and housed a good amount of bb and you didn't have much of a cycle.

i must have gotten very lucky...i may add a very small cuc but im waiting a little while to add fish. I am going to monitor my parameters and keep it level. When i do water changes, is there any pre mixed that i can buy so i dont need to mix my own?

If you just set everything up then you don't have a source of ammonia - you won't have any nitrate or nitrite either. That doesn't mean you're done cycling, it means you haven't started. Start with the fishless cycle and see how it goes, the LR may make for a quick cycle.
