Consistency is the key.. check it every other day... keep a fish count and watch where they are in the tank, take note of their movments ect., while your daily water changes may make life a tad easier on the danios, i feel its going to get you into a partial cycle, you'll add fish, and have mass chaos.
Ive never heard a bad thing said about cycling a tank with plants.. im actually getting some established filter floss from an experienced fish keeper on tuesday which should do a lot of good for my cycle
