Cycling worries ?

So I've started the cycle since I've put in my LR and LS, but I got a couple of worries
1) the LR was out of water for about 3-3.5hrs. Is it still okay? As soon as I got home I put it in straight away.
2) when I put the LS (live sand) in, it mad a ton of froff on surface of water
3) has 'live-ness' gone? Since they were in a cold boot? (but the LR was triple wrapped in a polybag, so I don't think that got much cold

Is there anything I can do to help my worries? At the moment the filter, heater are running, if I put my air pump on, will this help anything?

Thanks

If the rock was still wet when you added it the bacti was alive let things settle for a few days dont run air pump as it will cause salt creep with the bubbles.
