Too fill or not too fill.....

So I have had my 2.5 gal on dry start for a little over a month now and I am getting decent growth from both my HC and DHG. I see several runners along the sides of my glass in the substrate and popping up all over. I am, however, tired of waiting. I was initially going to go without co2 but being that I used to play paintball I have some of the things I need to do a small co2 regulator so I will be building that soon and ordering macro and micro ferts. So my question to you is should I fill it once I get a co2 system put together soon or wait another month or more?

I say fill. I've been staring at my dry start for about the same amount of time as you. Getting reaally antsy and patience is wearing thin. Gonna fill it this week when my other plants arrive. It'll be nice to actually see some movement in the tank for sure

I feel you. It is torture waiting so long. If not for having another tank with shrimp I would go crazy. I guess I will see how long it takes me to get my things in order to see when I will fill it.
