I'm in the process of setting up my tank right now it's just water filter substrate and some driftwood. My kids want me to add fish but I explained to them that I gotta add plants first and before I can add plants I gotta buy frets. They didn't care they just want the fish in lol. So my question is do I have to have the ferts in hand or can I put in plants then wait a week or 2 for my ferts? And also before I add fish can I just add them or do I need to cycle the tank? I've read whereas the plants kinda cycle the tank enough for fish to he introduced? My GF won't allow pure ammonia in my house because of the kids so I have to do the fish-in cycle otherwise. Much advice needed. Thank you
