Was your live rock already cured before you added it? If you are not sure, be sure and test frequently for any spikes in ammonia levels as the curing process for live rock can cause this.

Also noticed that you said you cycled the tank with just sand? Is that correct, I am not sure of the potential for all the bacteria to grow simply in the substrate. Most bacteria grow on surfaces and nearly none is found in the actual water. Without any filter media for the bacteria to attach itself to and because you said you just added the live rock a day ago, you may be lacking the bacterial bio-mass that is needed.

I would watch your water parameters closing for the next week or two.
