New tank setup Q&A....

So I'm looking to try a new tank setup after my 10 gallon failed with the cherry barbs I want to now set up a much larger tank and incorporate 6 cherry barbs and 6 gold barbs along with one albino pleco.
I am looking to purchase a 30+ gallon tank and begin cycling the water. And start the tank from scratch.
If I plan to have plants such as foxtail java moss and African sword tail. Should I be putting a fine soil down under my rocks to allow for better rooting? And if so what would be a durable soul to use.
As well from what I read the best way to begin the tank cycling is by adding good to the water a few times a day. Any suggestions on how to get this cycling process up and going.
As well should I wait to add plants until after I have added the fish or should I start wth the plants and just do co2 treatments until I have added the fish.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
