Cycled in one week?

So here it is. I started cying my 90g/30g sump one week ago. 150lbs fiji live rock (from an established system) and 100lbs of dry aragonite. Have only been testing for the past three days so i dont know if ive had an ammonia spike yet.

Ammonia 0ppm
Nitrite 0ppm

Have i cycled in record time? Do you think it is safe to add a cuc? What do you think.
Thanks for looking at my thread!

If the rock wasn't out of the water for long, it's very possible you may skip a full cycle. I would add an ammonia source and see if the bacteria colony processes it quickly.

Thats what i was thinking. Add some ammonia an see if the bacteria eats it up fast. If it does then i would think im cycled.
