hey guys. a couple days ago i got a 40 gallon long and decided id try out planted aquariums. so far ive got the filter, light, fertilized substrate mixed with gravel, large piece of driftwood, and some easier plants including duckweed, guppy grass, anubius, bacopa, and Eusteralis Stellata. how should i go about properly cycling it to keep the plants alive and get it safe for fish? At the moment ive only added water conditioner and some root tabs. does this sound like a good start to a healthy happy tank? any tips are greatly appreciated. (have had tanks before but never planted and no bigger than ten gallons) Thanks!
