It depends if it is cured or uncured rock. You most likely will get some sort of spike. Is this rock going into a cycled tank or a new tank?

If you are worried about a spike, you will need to cure it yourself. Eve though it says cured, not everything died off. I am not 100% sure on how to cure it, someone else will have to tell you.
