New Tank Plus Refugiium Question

I have a new 55g FOWLR tank that is about to start cycling, the LR should be here tomorrow.

I have just purchased a Refugium which should be shipped here next week.

My question is on timing:
Should I leave the refugium out of the system until the tank is cycled?
OR
Should I set it up now with the mud etc in the bottom and leave the addition of caulerpa or whatever until the tank has cycled?
OR
Should I set it up 100% with mud and plants now at the beginning if the cycle?

No reason not to set up the 'fuge itself. The macro can probably wait until after the cycle, but probably won't hurt anything if its in before. How big a 'fuge did you get?
