2.5 start up

I am going to start a 2.5 nano this weekend. I have the tank, light and filter also just received black eco complete. My question is the eco complete is the (new style) packed in water when I start the tank I am going to plant it with HC. How long do I have to cycle before adding RCS.? I have the filter media currently in another planted tank(3 weeks).

If filter media is already established I would say not very long at all, maybe just like a week or so.

Test the water. And it's always better to play it safe than to rush it.
