Not waiting for the cycle to complete b4 planting are you? The plants will help w/ the cycle. The plants w/ use some of the Ammonia and plants inherently have some bacteria on them from their previous tanks. Both will help cycle the tank.
If you've already planted them, well great job!!!!
Basically this is what has happened so far:
I got the tank and rinsed it out, added the cork backing, added the substrate, added the filter, added water & treated it for chlorine etc., bought the light & timer gizmo.
I didn't do anything with the tank on Saturday, just making sure I didn't have any leaks and that the filter worked.
Added scrub plants from my lfs. I messed around with some possible layout ideas using the scrub plants to help me visualize what it may look like with other plants in place.
Came to the realization with a nano even midsize plants are overwhelming due to the small size considering its only about 7 1/2 inches tall, once you add substrate or driftwood and it doesn't take much plant to reach the surface.
I'm going to be pretty busy the next couple of days, but I'll be on the lookout for some nice driftwood or some type of structure to add dimesion and making sure the light timer is set correctly and working ok.
Anybody have some driftwood alternatives or suggestions? The plastic stuff they sell at my lfs is to big or junky looking.
