I did a ton of water changes the first week, several a day. My water was yellow initially, after a week of 50% changes it was mostly clear. I had some purigen handy and that cleared the remainder in hours. As long as your tank is adequately planted you shouldn't have problems with water quality,the plants will use up the excess nutrients. I added my first fish 10 days after starting, no problems.
