Cycling Questions

So last night, I got Solomen Island LR in my 29 FOWLR tank...

During the cycling process what should I be on the look out for... I know I need to daily test the ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate levels... and keep an eye on temp, pH, etc...

The ammonia will spike first, then nitriite (ammonia should drop) and then nitrate spike (nitrite drop)...

I was told to buy this Marine Buffer... when does that get added? When I see the pH drop? When does that happen?

Also, when do I put in the Purigen in my power filter? Should I start that now or will that prolong the cycling period?

Many thanks!
