Plant question

I noticed alot of the new people "including myself" to the planted tanks seem to plant everything at once or least a large amount at once. Is this a must or more beneficial to the plants instead of just gradually introducing them like a couple plants at a time?

There is not really a best way to introduce plants and can be done however you like. Hope this helps!

Hello Gabe...

I would plant the tank all at once. This way, you put your hands into the water one time and don't disturb things. Decide on the plants you want, plant them with room for them to grow and provide the appropiate lighting.

This is the simple version, but this is the way I planted my tanks.
