i have a 20 gallon tall tank. i just tore it down and cleaned everything (long story) so now that i am starting over i want to make it a planted tank. the tank will need to be cycled. Question1: do i wait until it's cycled to add the plants?
i have dark blue gravel that we just purchased so i want to use it. i heard that it will work for low light low maintenance plants. Q2: is this true?
The hood that came with this tank has an 8000K 15W 18" bulb in it. Q3: will this be sufficient for low light plants? if not, any suggestion on what would be?
