New plants and CO2

Yesterday I received my 45 plant package form www.freshwateraqariumplants.com . The plants were in a great shape. I spent few hours last night planting them in my 50g tank.

Now the question I have is, how soon can I start adding CO2 to the tank (DIY). My DIY CO2 reactor is ready to go and has been running for few days now.

Thanks
PK

Yesterday is right out, so that leaves today or tomorrow.
So what did you get?

I am on it. Will start as soon as I get home. I already have all the stuff.

These are some of the plants I got. This is all I can remember right now. Still new to plants.

Dwarf Sagittaria
Narrow Saggitaria
Cryptocorynes (Wendtii Green and Red
Red Ozelot
Java Fern
Vallisneria Spiralis
Narrow Ludwigia
Christmas moss

My silver dollars (3) were going at saggitaria right away. I had to take them out and give them to my friend right away or they would have finished those plants by the morning. I hope to bring them back once my tank is all filled up.

Silver Dollars are a bad idea for planted tanks. That is, unless the plants can grow faster than their eaten, but that will be tough. I had 4 silver dollars in a 40g planted tank a few years ago and they ate the amazon swords and a corkscrew vals down to the substrate...absolutely no mercy with these guys. Gouramis are fans of eating plants too, at least in my experience.
