Ok- so I'm currently cycling my 10 gallon with a shrimp. My one raw shrimp is in a mesh bag (man, the look on the guy's face who was working the seafood counter was priceless when I asked him for one shrimp! LOL), and in my tank. So I've got my heater running at 80 degrees, filter running, gravel set up (both new and some from an existing tank at my LFS). I've also got my air pump ready to go with an air stone. Is this needed or can I wait to run it till I have my fish? Also, I was thinking I'd test the water once a week till I've got the right levels. Does this sound about right? I'm so excited!! Finally!!! Oh, one more thing. Can I add some plants slowly as it cycles? Or do I need to add them all at once, or add them once I have the fish? I want this process to go as smoothly/quickly as possible. Thanks!
