My tank has finally cycled. Do I let my plants grow in more before I get shrimp, or should I be good?
I'd give it at minimum 2 more weeks post cycling before adding shrimp.

I have decided to let the plants grow in as this means they will be able to establish roots and all that jazz before anything else comes in and disturbs it. Remember one step at a time. Don't do everything at once

Sounds good. Thanks guys. I’ll give it a few more weeks. Once I get home from work tonight, I’ll post some 1 month update photos.

How long does it take for Amazon Swords to send up new leaves? I’m waiting on my saint elmo’s Fire to send up new growth. Had it for just over a month.

Amazon swords might take a few weeks after being moved to show new growth. Make sure they have proper nutrients and lighting

I finally ordered and received my blue bolts. They are booking it around the tank and getting used to it.

Ordered from Flip Aquatics on Saturday and they were delivered in perfect health today.
