Just tie it off and throw it into the display. It rotting will create the ammonia you need to cycle your tank. Cycling builds the bacteria needed to complete the nitrate cycle, aka what prevents your fish from being poisoned to death.
Don't waste the carbon or chemi-pure during the cycle. Wait til things are done and you are adding livestock.

Ok man thanks.. This actually my stand I build.. I'll be using a 18in led light for the sump area and a 72in led for the aquarium.. I'll be mounting it from the wall so that it is hanging over the tank and I have a quarantine tank right next to it.. I just have my green bird wrasse, marine beta and bursa trigger.. My tank is going to be 8ft long.. And btw in the refug what should I run in it with dsb..? I know people usually put pods and stuff in there.. Do I need to do that with me just running fowlr..? And some people run that green plants idk what it's called.. What do you think..?

Refugiums have macro algae in them to export nutrients. Cheato is a popular choice. But if you run an ats, you won't need a refugium. They do the same thing by use of algae.
