Yeah, that will be a good idea, might still take longer than 14 days to cycle, but it should cut down the time by a lot!

2 weeks would probably be okay to go with the stones in the sump, just take it easy to not add any animals before that Then when you get it it's just to put the reactor in use 24h per day

No problem, you are doing very well, bringing a part of the sea to the tank, which will be very helpful. It is also recommended to use Zeo Sponge Power, which will help the sponge provide food to it and Improve water quality

This is from the KZ (FAQ) mentioned

4. Live rock
It is very important to use fresh and clear live rock, approx. 10 % of the tank's contents After you bring in the live rock in the tank, the sand bed is next. At this time the skimmer is started as well as the ZEOvit Filter and the tank needs light now!
-

If you can pick a live rock, it is extremely light in the same volume, with a lot of pores and calcified algae. That's it. It's hard to say that everyone likes it differently. Don't buy dry stones, I believe it is ok.

In theory, the more the better. BUT if you're going to use dry rock in the tank, and use the live rock to "seed" the dry rock, even half a kilo will be enough, as it will introduce the correct bacteria and other needed life.

Continue the original 14 cycles, as long as the original water is guaranteed, it should be possible. (I am not sure)

Jacky is right, try to keep the sand and the rocks submerged while moving the tank.

I would recommend you to continue dosing as follows:

2 drops ZeoBac 2 x weekly
2 drops SpongePower every other day
0.15 ml ZeoStart 2 x daily

Continue with this dosing regimen until the first 4 weeks have passed, than replace 50% of the ZeoVit material. After each exchange dose ZeoBac daily for 10 days, than as usual 2 x weekly.

In addition to the G. dosing regimen you can add functional bio-assisting and increase tank biology (not too much at once). Activated carbon addition is recommended at this time. Kh Ca Mg K+ is maintained at a level.

OK. During this time (14 days), you only need to measure the NO2 level. If it is 0, you can choose some functional biological additions to start. (some, not more). And continue Zeo bac, sp, start3. Until the first change of Zeo zeolite (one month)

Also look forward to the current tank picture to share with us
