it highly likely cycle will you run a sump? you can throw in some macro algae to speed up the process. live sand from a bag is highly unlikely to have anything alive.

Remember the quote, "Only bad things happen fast" in reef keeping.  It's save you money and headaches.

The more of each of the four live components a tank starts with, the less a "cycle" will even show.
Do you know which live component is the easiest to add more of to practically eliminate the "cycle"?
Hint: SGH360 gave the answer.
If this does not sound familiar to you, read the thread linked in my signature line.
