If you are doing a fishless cycle, I would start right away. Low Nitrates, high light in the beginning is a recipe for BGA.

Start EI dosing couple of days after planting. You don't need lights for cycling either.

If you have a choice, you have a problem, till you elect your choice. No choice, no problem, only consequences, learn to live with them.
