Ok, so I have a new (used) tank. It is 65 gallons, and it is just sitting there empty. We have a Marineland, penguin 350 filter for it. No lights, substrate, or heater yet. I would like to plant it, what substrate do I need to get, and what type of lights do I need? I have read up on cycling, but I am not catching on. I want to do a fishless cycle, because we have not agreed on what fish we will be getting yet. Also, I have tested the water in the past. We have a well, which is a shallow well. The water is unsuitable to drink because it contains higher amounts of nitrates, as well as ammonia. Should I buy water elsewhere to use in the tank, or try and treat my well water to make it safe?
