Fair enough, well i'll look for what appears to be healthy plants, and go from there then.

I cant wait to get fish in the tank though, but I want to make sure its all done properly, and its safe for the fish. Could I mix plants with dead shrimp to get the tank well balanced, or should I do just 1 or other?

Do I not need to add something to the water to create ammonia for the plants?

I dont think soi didnt i just had a few plants (1 or 2) a week later i added my first fish..
But if you had a lot of plants and set it up today you could probably get 1-2 or maybe even 3 platys tommorow. The test waater every other day and a weeklater you could add some pygmy corys.. And maybe some othe small fish////
