I would cycle the rock outside of the main display, same with the sand but more so for the rock. You want it to cure for about 4 weeks before you place it in your tank. If not, it will cause your tank to cycle again.

You could end up with a huge ammonia spike depending how much die off on the live rock occurs. Even "cured" rock especially shipped should still be cured again or at least put in the quarantine tank just in case. Plus, you never know what you are going to get if you just throw it in there.
