120G planted, 10G breeder
All great advice, but I’d add an emphasis on patience...! Don’t spend too much time second guessing yourself and let it happen naturally. I’ve managed to cycle a 120G in 6 weeks using only some bacteria (anaerobic and aerobic), lots of plants, the right amount of light, and PATIENCE! If you’re not familiar with adding ammonia to start the cycle then be leery as it is more complicated and demanding than it may seem, especially if you’re using the shrimp method. Again, IMO, less additives + time and patience = less stress...
