How long does it take for dechlorinate to work?

I'm setting up a new 84g tank. It will be mgocpm capped with 2x Caribbean Sea instant cycle black sand rock and 4 ish bags of Eco complete. It would take a while to dechlorinate that much water (or lots of buckets)

How long does it take dechlorinate to work? Will it hurt if I add substrate, plants and dechlorinate later?

Would the potential chlorine hurt or affect anything negatively? (Will be fish less for atleast another week as I'm waiting for some drift wood to come in)

84g just two capfuls of prime and start filling. It's 1ml per 10g of new water. A little extra never hurts. But yeah two capfuls and start filling. I always pour it right before I start to add my new water

Depending where you are in Canada you may want to add extra prime to compensate for the nasty water that spring run-off can bring.
Here in Edmonton the ammonia is way up and people are doing double doses which will continue for a few weeks for safetys sake.
