    I am getting material from a sump of a marine tank that is being taken down this includes all his live rock and filter media and every thing there is full of copods and many other marine life he has .If I put all of this material into my sump as I start up my tank first of all will this survive the cycle or should I wait to put it into my sump?

    Except for the snails, the others would not have an issue to survive being in the sump.

    Algae eating snails will have issues in a brand new tank. Any old rock coming with? That got algae maybe on them?
