Hey there Internet aquaticists I'm going to be setting up my first tank this weekend. I've been reading as much as I can and feel like I may just have my bearings. I guess I'm looking for some general advice, maybe about what substrates are worth the bucks and which ones not so much. My plan is to plant very heavily from the beginning and go low tech. Is it necessary to cycle the tank without plants for a week or two before I start adding? Any start up guides you would recommend? Thanks and I'll post pics along the way!
