Update. So I'm pretty sure I did not plant nearly enough plants. It's cycling but I lost two parts of my Needle Leaf. :/ So now the question is what do I add to the middle of the cycle? I tossed in a Anubias Petite so we will see how it does. Ammonia is 0 but I'm off the charts with Nitrites and Nitrates. So do I go more stems or a bunch of floaters like Frogbit or Anarchis?
If you look closely at the right needle leaf you can see some die off at the base of the plant. Top of the plant is still green and growing?
