Setting up a Discus tank; how long till you put them in?

Hi, I'm setting up a Discus tank to keep them for the first time. I was just wondering how long you leave it till you put your Discus in? It's currently lightly stocked with some tetras.

hi, personally I would wait up to 3 months for the tank to fully settle and mature before adding discus, many add them sooner but as my discus tanks usually have substrate and plants in I allow longer before introducing them.
