Can anyone recommend a good book or series of online classes or anything for a newbie who is trying to get into this hobby of planted tanks?
You've already found it. As others have suggested? This forum is the source you need. So start reading. Go through all the stickied posts, read through tank journals (Tank Journals is my favorite section of the forum), read through some problem posts about topics you're interested in. It's a treasure trove.

I say that because there's no one, singular method to accomplish anything. Nothing is set in stone. So individual guides should not be your primary source of information. Definitely check out what's been suggested (avoid YouTube unless you're sure they know what they're talking about, as most don't focus on in-depth information and cater to people with no real desire to learn beyond aesthetics), read through some guides and seriously - dig in to the forum.

One other guide to recommend is the original PlantedTank.net guide, which is available via Amazon. It was the forum's go-to guide for beginners for a long time and was written by Wasserpest. But you for real don't have to spend any money to learn. It's all right here.
