My tank is currently in the 2nd day of cycling...
But today I added 2 more rocks and 2 new plants ive washed them thoroughly ect

I was wondering if it will effect the cycle or does it not matter?


Kinda worried as setting up again is the last thing I wana do

That is a good question, and I was wondering the same thing.. If adding plants to the tank will effect the break in cycle or if you should wait until after the break in cycle to add them?

Adding live plants to the tank during the cycle is not dangerous at all; in fact, it is beneficial. I don't know if only few plants will help speed up the cycle, but a tank full of plants cycles much faster than one without them. This is because plants consume ammonia and nitrite, as well as nitrate to a lesser extent - all of which are present during the cycle. Ammonia and nitrates are plants' nutrients.

You're all welcome, once again

I actually am going to cycle my 75 gallon tank with live plants. I'll plant the entire tank as I fill it with water. I can't wait to do this and see what heppens

What fish are you planning on putting in it

I'll put 2 or 4 of my current angels in there (another 2 will stay in my 30 gallon tank); then I'll get 3 rams, and some cherry barbs, harlequin rasboras, zebra danios, and diamond tetras or emperor tetras. I love all of these fish. I'd also like some rainbows but because they're not so small and need to be in schools, I'll get rainbows next time I'm getting a bigger tank (I'm hoping at least 125 gallons) .
