    As for adding any livestock I would rather wait at least 6 weeks to let the system mature a bit more. If you do add livestock rather a bit at a time rather than a lot in one go. That way you minimize the impact of the mini cycle it goes through when adding new fish and corals.

    I would start off with a clean up crew first. Some hermit crabs and snails. I know the temptation is soooo much to buy a lot in one go but rather take it slow. The slower the better, that way you wont run into problems and waste your money.

    If that rock was not allowed to dry out, then you would not have a cycle period.
    Rock should already be 100% plus cured.
    Maybe some settlement within the rock over time, but a good rinse would sort that.

    Then there should not be a cycle. As there would not be any die-off.
    Same as a tank move.
