Order of Tank Setup?
So my Flex 57L is coming today, and I'd like to get cycling ASAP. I am planning on adding CO2, lots of plants, probably adding more light, and using the ADA Amazonia Powder Type.
Should I just do the substrate and hardscape before adding the plants? I know that soil puts out ammonia to help start the cycling, but will it kill off my plants and have an algae bloom?
Just curious how everyone else went about things. Thanks.
