I know this hobby is about patience but is there anything I can do to make the environment more friendly for the bacteria?

Turnin up the heater to mid 80's might help- bacteria like warm places. Just remember to turn back down before you add fish at end of cycle.

Reefs2go has amazing pods. In terms of coralline, you can't buy just it to my knowledge... But to seed my tanks with margarita snails or coral with coralline on it.

My LFS keeps the tigger pods in the fridge, so if I want them to live (and I do-lol), I have to acclimate them so I don't shock them with the temp change when I put them in the fuge.
