90 gallon saltwater build

Just set up our new 90 gallon and now we wait for it to cycle. We did base dry rock with dry sand and 10 pound bag of live sand. Our question is is this enough to cycle our tank?Click image for larger version

No that's not going to be enough to cycle it on it's own. Add an ammonia source (either pure ammonia or a thawed cocktail shrimp or 2) and let it do it's thing. Scape looks nice

Ya just a regular shrimp. Put it in a media bag, or pantyhose so that when it's time to pull it out you just grab the bag and don't have to fish around for pieces.

How long does the shrimp have to stay in the tank? When do I check water and do water change? Thanks for your help in advance.
