I've used Stability to cycle 2.5g and 10g tanks, went pretty quickly. Only issue was getting nitrites to absolute zero, but two PWCs finished both in about a week and a half/two weeks

Go nuts with the hardy low-light plants like anacharis, java ferns, and java ferns if you're new to plants. They're hard to kill and easy to provide for. You might try branching out into more...

Couple things:
1) Kind of curious why you'd bury the seed gravel. It seems like the seed gravel would better circulate by being directly in the path of of water flow than buried beneath it.
