I just used some Fritz Turbostart 900 and some flakes to cycle a brackish aquarium. How long should it take to cycle?

Not sure, but the Fritz 900 has good reviews on here, to boost your cycle.

@Dr. Reef
Got any incite on the time frame with Turbo 900?

Above recommendation is correct. Dose ammonia to 2ppm and then add bacteria and some flake food. Watch it drop down to 0 and then add about 1 ppm ammonia again and let that drop to 0 within 24 hrs or so then your tank is cycled.
In my experiments 5 gal tank with 8ppm ammonia dropped to 0 in 2-3 days.
