Nitrites and plants?
 
Hey everybody, just wondering, I want to go out and get some live plants tonight. Not sure what kind. More than likely whatever is cheapest and in the moderate lighting area. But I want to put these in my cycling 28 gallon. I'll go do another test... Awesome, it appears the water change I did yesterday helped greatly. Ammonia 0ppm,Nitrite levels are .25ppm. Nitrates 20ppm. I don't know much about plants, just that they need light. What says ye? Should I go ahead and put whatever plant I get in there, and it probably won't effect it greatly. Or wait till the cycle is finished?

Cool thanks, I was thinking some amazon sword, last time I was at my lfs they had those and they were huge! And kinda of expensive. But we'll see.

Just so you know amazon swords can quickly get out of control huge. I have a couple in my 29 gallon and even with a lot of trimming they are still almost too big
