You just put your sand and live rock then the water, right? It won't kill any of the live stuff on the rock?

Put everything into your system as soon as you can. You'll want to add an ammonia source to cycle the tank as your sand and rock not being wet kills off the beneficial bacteria you need to break down ammonia and nitrite when you feed and livestock poops.
