Nick using cured rock and cycled stuff will not prevent a diatom bloom. It's caused when all your hard work settles in. When you stir up the substrate pouring it in the tank, when you moved the rocks, when you add corals. Please you've done well so far but learn patience. It will bite you in the ass if you continue at the same pace. And remember your tank is tiny, be gentle.
As a reference I just bought a 400g tank. I'm not even planning to put water in it for over a year.
