If established rock is kept submerged that should be an instant cycle (no cycle present at all). But I would just do the shrimp method as a check to make sure your not going to be killing livestock. Nobody things u need to do it, it's just the easiest way.

I run a penguin 250 bio wheel ( without the wheel, is is only good for nitrate factory) on my 55 along with a hob slimmer. I also run a whisper 70 hob filter as well.
