Will need to cycle the new tank or add lot's of plant's and wait for a few week's (maybe three) and then add fish a few at a time.

Depending on how long it was in the bucket, almost any tank that you setup that is new will have some sort of a cycle. Even with used filters there is chance of a spike. Best to run and do a cycle and watch your parameters just to be sure.

It won't be as bad as a cycle, but you will still need to build up beneficiary bacteria again.

Your tank will need to be cycled but the soil leaching will no longer be an issue.
