I am a big advocate of ADA Amazonia. I am currently setting up an aquarium with SL-Aqua to try it out, but ADA has always been my go to with great success.

Not necessarily. The cycling process in general takes time, normally 4-6 weeks to establish your beneficial bacteria load. Its certainly no race to add shrimp as much as we would like it to be, the cycling process is so very important and imperative it is done correctly. SL-Aqua and ADA from my understanding are both great substrates, I am sure you will be happy with either.
