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.

YMMV

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

Why do you believe that Cycle was beneficial to the plants?
