Cycle sump

If I install a sump do I have to cycle the tank and sump??? The aquarium is about ready for fish. I have a 36 gallon tank and I'm think about making a sump with a 10 gallon glass tank.

The sump should be connected to the tank and should cycle when the tank does. A better word would be cycling the system. Because all together its a system. So no, don't cycle them separately.

I will not have the sump build for a couple more weeks. So you are telling me I need to start all over.

No if your tank is already setup and cycled just basically "plug" the sump into the setup and start it up. It will establish itself.
