I've got all of my equipment, my substrate and bonsais, rocks and other decor ready to go. So what comes next? Run a fishless and plantless cycle? I've never done a CO2 tank before and I'm not sure if I set it up and cycle it before I add the plants. Set me straight!

Plants don't really effect establishing a cycle one way or the other so you can plant before, during or after a fish less cycle. Starting with plants give you some time for the plants to establish and getting at least that part figured out.
