Tank cycling question

Hi,
I just bought a new 80 gal tank. (thanks to George Bush) I am using mature biowheels from an existing tank on a new filter, sand, gravel etc. are all new. I moved some platys a few days ago, how long should I wait to move my 3 clowns.
Do I need to go thru the usual 6 week cycle or does the mature filter speed things up? I'm dying to give my clowns some space.

Thanks in advance,
Leigh
