It's important to have amphipods of varying sizes, small ones for the hatchlings when they start, and larger ones as they grow. You might check with Octopets to make sure this is the case, or request a mixture.

Are amphipods hardy enough to be introduced while the tank is still cycling?

Yes, they normally arrive in peoples tank with the initial batch of live rock, they can survive a break in period with unseeded live rock!
