No, a Fox Face would not survive a cycle.
Given this question, we need to have a very long conversation. The topic of cycling is not really relevant for a properly set up marine aquarium, which should use a Protein skimmer, live rock, and live sand as the only methods of filtration. In these systems, the live rock will "cycle" the tank in a few short days, resulting in almost no cycling of ammonia or nitrite. The real waiting period is for the system to "mature", which is identified by the growth of coraline algae and populations of copepods and amphipods, as well as the passing of a diatom bloom.
Your question tells us a lot of information, and leads me to believe that you have been given very bad advice at some point in the beginnings of your attempt at the marine hobby.
Can you give us details of your setup, equipment, and plans? Pictures would be great.
