Some LFS where I live have saltwater you can buy and it already has a enourmous amount of bacteria
The bacteria don't live in the water column. They are on the lr and ls.
Save some cash. start the cycle with 1/2 the amount of base rock ($!/lb) needed. Add a shrimp. Wait like 2 weeks and then order lr. In a few months you won't be able to tell which rocks are which

A lot of ripples make a wave
