Need an advice about cycle

First ...
I apologize for the ugly background paper . I will fix it soon .

And ...I received a very quality trim for my aquarium. The aquarium is in the second week in cycle. The last thing I want is for plants not to thrive.

I do not know the names and needs of all the plants. Some may need strong lighting and aggressive fertilization.I want all the experience of the wisdom of the masses to help me maintain the plants even if I will not add more fish in this period.



The 370 liter tank



Between 108 watts to 216 watts + an option for another 60 watts of 2 LEDs Projectors




I have not started yet because the Amazonia light still emits fertilizer.

I have fertilizer powders that I plan to work with and the dosages may need to be given gradually to avoid algae I'm so afraid of snatching from them.


I would like your opinion on a gradual increase in the plants success in terms of:

CO2 injection




KH2PO4 - Mono Potassium Phosphate Mono Potassium Phosphate

KNO3 - Potassium Nitrate Potassium Nitrate

K2SO4 - Potassium Sulfate


Plantex CSM + Boron CSM + B

Iron Secham

Looking pretty good. Cycle is more important for your fish. Plants will be fine, since they absorb nitrates, any unbalance in the tank will be stabilized as they sort things out and get established.
