Patience is critical in this hobby.
If you are set on trying to speed up the cycle a little, there is no reason to use a live animal to do this dirty task.
Simply feed the curing live rock with some flake food daily. This will introduce more ammonia and thus speed the cycle.
Most off the shelf products dont' work.
I suggest just being patient though.
