Resetup Aquarium, first time with live plants.
I just got my 35 gallon I got from a Friend setup, with live plants!

this is the first time im trying live plants, and it will be an experience.

Im not sure whats all in the tank, I know for sure the majority is java furn, there is also some sort of vine, i think it may be teresterial. I had to also move some live plants from the 25 gallon aquarium because I wont be setting it up for a while.

Right now the plants are in mixed states, some are green, some are quite brown,

the tank is setup and running, I added liquid fertilizer, and some CYCLE to the tank, os there anything else i can do to help them grow?

here is some picture by the way. its a little messy right now but i expect i will lose some plants aswell.

sorry the quality is bad by the way, I only have my cellphone to take pictures right now.

P.S is there a good brand of flourencet light that doesnt buzz to loud?

Not sure on the plant front, but in regards to light, I just got a new Coralife 68 watt last week for my new planted tank I am trying to start and I can't hear any noise coming from it at all. Unless its blended into my background noise already, I will take another listen when I get home from work.

Looks like you are doing good but one question which is "just out of curiosity".
