    If your parameters are OK, then I would not suggest adding live sand or live rock to your set-up. Adding live rock and/or live sand to a existing set-up can cause an ammonia spike due to the die-off on the rocks and live sand if it is large enough. If you keep everything as is, you can add good quality marine sand and some good dry rock and just let it become live over time. That would also save you some money
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    By slowly increasing the salinity, you are allowing the different types of needed bacteria to grow naturally along with salinity changes so no worries there

    You can practically get a instantly cycled tank much in the same way as using fully seeded biological filter media in fresh water. As another option for you to consider, you could get some live rock, cure it yourself in another tank or container, then add it to your tank. The below link can helpt explain that a little better
