Here's how I cycled in two weeks

Fish less cycle, used a used filter media from my uncle and put it in my filter, also used tetra safe start, some shrimp( like the shrimp you buy at wal-mart to eat) and put one in, that's how I did it in 2 weeks

It was out of water for 3days. There was no coral or stuff on it but ya. My sump had sea sand and some rocks too that were submerged during that Tym (but no flow). Iv filled the Sump with normal tap water and submerged all rocks. Most of crabs died

It would have been much better to avoid letting them sit in fresh water. You are likely going to have to start out at day 1 with a cycle again

There's really not any for sure way to get things moving faster aside from buying cured live rock to seed with
