I was just gifted a 20 gal tank. It came with a heater, thermometer, filter, LED lights. Whatever comes with the topfin starter kit, essentially. I’m not super sure where to start. Ideally I would like to keep live plants and mostly shrimp, and a few small fish if necessary for the overall tank life. The plants I’m planning to order are combined with driftwood: MICROSORUM WINDELOV Fern Driftwood, JAVA FERN driftwood, JAVA MOSS driftwood, and BUCEPHALANDRA driftwood. These come as a set from a local seller. I got some mixed info on when and how I should start cycling my tank. With the driftwood plants, I was told I wouldn’t need substrate, but should I get it anyway? Can I cycle my tank with the plants? Are the plants a good fit for the tank I want to achieve? Right now I kind of need some specific advice based on this. Is this attainable as a first timer?
