I'm clueless on when you could plant as I haven't started looking in to it in depth just yet. I think that is the route I'm going to go though. Maybe ill let you get started and then just follow in your footsteps!

I'm pretty positive you can put the plants in as soon as you've put the substrate in, although the substrate will probably cloud your water for a day or two.

Hmmm forgot about the clouding. I was gonna go with a flourite(?) type substrate. I think it's pretty gravel like so maybe I won't have too much cloudiness.

If you haven't guessd I am now leaning towards the planted. Just emptied the 10g and dumped the gravel. So it's a complete blank slate.

lol I think my sw needs are currently being met. I may get the pico when I do the 125g/55g switch since I am gonna break down the cube to get some of thelr in there into the 125g. Then I can catch the candycane. It would be impossible to do now.

Suit yourself, in the back of your head, just remember the pico that could have been.

I can't keep cacti alive either, and my java fern has turned into three seperate plants. It's thriving. I guess land plants just aren't for me. I say go with a planted tank.

And you can put plants in as soon as you have it ready with gravel, lights, etc. And yes, they can be in during the cycle. I believe that's called a silent cycle. I think. lol

Whatever you choose, it's one of Carey's tanks, so it will be amazing.
