Hi guys. My 10 gallon tank has finally cycled. I have not added my gravel and real plants.
Im planning to do that today but will this mess my cycle up?
Ive rinsed the gravel several times and im now letting it sit in water with prime until i add it in the tank. I also have real plants that I want to add. Ive set the plants in water & prime as well.
Can I add my fish in a few hours after I add the gravel & plants? Thanks!

You can add your gravel and plant your tank. When you're happy with it, add fish.

Some dust is theoretically possible. If you're soaking it, though, not likely.

Lower the water level before you make any changes to avoid making a mess.
