You need to tell us how much ammonia you are getting from the soil for us to tell you if thats ok. Additionally we need to know how the tank is planted, im assuming its planted since ADA AS is a specialized plant substrate, before we can help you make that decision.

Of all the people i have met and communicated with about ADA AS, I always hear about adding plants and letting the plants grow in for at least a week or more before adding fauna.

Um this morning I got a .5 ppm reading but I did large wc so I could put some wood in there with out over flowing the tank. What is fauna... And ess it is heavily planted with cacomba, some kinda bamboo rooted thing with leaves, pretty much dead HC ludwiga of somesort, I think star leaf grass, and a rred plant doing great but don't know it's name.

bamboo plants aren't true aquatic and will rot unless the leaves are above water.

I would avoid adding fish until your tank is stable.

Fauna is animals. Flora is plants.
