Hey guys,

Just joined the forum as I am in the very early stages of setting up my first planted tank, a 37 gallon tall tank. I consider this my first foray into the hobby - my mom had an aquarium when I was growing up and I had a small one in my bedroom as a young teenager, but I hardly knew what I was doing and it was fish only with plastic plants

Here's my setup so far:
  • 37 Gallon tall aquarium
  • Fluval/Aquaclear 70 HOB filter
  • Adjustable heater
  • 40lbs CaribSea Eco-Completed planted tank substrate
  • 12lbs CaribSea Exotica Mountain stone
  • Fluval Fresh & Plant 3.0 (In the mail)
I have a nice piece of Manzanita driftwood on the way.

It's been set up since Saturday 7/24 and I've added API Stress Zyme a few times, but I'm not getting any readings above 0 for ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates. I was thinking about adding Seachem Stability. What do you guys think?

Once the driftwood arrives, I'm going to work on the hardscape and stock it full of plants. So exciting!

I'll post a picture later.
