hello and welcome..
ahhhh that new tank build...nothing more exciting i think !
have fun,take it easy.
have you had a read about the aquarium cycle ?

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

yes, have just set the tank up tonight,
and running it empty (no fish),
will hopefully place live plants in tomorrow, and let it run for a good week
before testing water and adding any fish.
