Yes the whole point of using live rock is to avoid a cycle.. The point of a cycle is to establish a bacterial colony capable of processing any ammonia into its lesser forms quickly.. The "live" in live rock implies it already has colonized bacteria living on it..

I'm not sure what that "biological booster" is but it could be the source of your ammonia..

You should expect little to no cycle at all..

Who me?
