Starting a 10g nano

hey guys, so i was thinking about starting a 10g nano tank. i was wondering the best way to start cycling it? Aside from that i already have a filter, heater, and light. Is there anything else i need besides live sand and live rock? i know you can cycle with the rock and sand, how long would that take aproximately? Thanks for the help (:

you will need a source of ammonia which can be either pure ammonia or just a shrimp from the grocery store. the cycle process will take about 4-6 weeks sometimes sooner you will need a saltwater test kit to test your levels and a hydrometer to test your salt level you will need salt mix and reverse osmosis distilled water
