added dividers to new feeder tank

just bought a 20 long tank at petco $1 a gal sale,
I added 2 plexiglass dividers to make 3 sections for different types of feeders , I'm looking to raise feeders
live mysis shrimp , live brine , and pods nothing overwhelming just enough to maintain my current tank and also my future tank

how long should I let the silicon gas out
before I add a light layer of sand and fill with water live rock rubble and and micro algae to cycle out
nothing fancy cheap hob filter and bubble stick to keep water moving till I build a better circulation set up for it

I bought 20# live rock from a friend who just took his tank down which I am going to smash into little tiny chunks
and 15# live sand paid $20. for it all
it's more than I really need but I'll find a use for it
right now its all in a 50 gal tote with 2 power heads in basement till I need it

also trying to get my friend to sell his 250 gal corner bow front
for real cheap to build a nice FOWLR predator tank

Fish are like lifesavers
They come in different colors
