A method that works very well, and is very easy to do, is to start the tank with a heavy planting of stem plants, start fertilizing right away, and inject CO2 right away. Your goal is to get those plants growing as quickly as possible, so they can use up any ammonia from the fish almost instantly, thus denying the algae any signal to start blooming. This method also allows you to start adding a few fish in a week or so, gradually building up the fish load over the next few weeks. Heavy planting means having every square inch of the substrate with a plant in it - no bunches of plants, just individual stems. This method works very well for me.
