starting new tank - doing fishless cycle but when to add plants?
Got my second tank today, I will be doing fishless cycle again and will have some mature filter materials which will hopefully speed up process... Question is: I want to have nicely scaped tank - rocks,plants, moss, driftwood... thinking of using plants substrate with sand on top. WHEN DO I ADD THOSE? from the start or half way thru cycle? after cycle finished before fish?
Re: starting new tank - doing fishless cycle but when to add plants?
Thank you fish lady, I am thinking about plant nutrition with to up of gravel or sand on top, the more I read about it thye more I think it can cause algea grow because of all the minerals... would you think it is better to just go with round gravel and get those fertilizer tabs to put near roots once plants are in?
