ok i am setting up my planted tank for the first time and I am wondering at what point do i add the plants? I am familiar with fish tanks fw & sw but i have never done planted. i filled my tank about a week ago and it now has ammonia and nitrates and nitrites. When do i start adding plants to it?

You can add the plants the day you set up the aquarium, in fact, it helps the tank cycle so it's probably best to! :biggrin:

this grow em emmersed for a few days/week (if you have the time) then fill it up so they have good rooting and will grow quick making it a short cycle
Fast growing stems will grow quick to aid in cycling too :proud:
