I'm currently 1 week into a fishless cycle with a 50 gallon tank. My question is whether adding plants while the tank is still cycling will help with the cycle or will it kill the plants? Should I wait for the tank to be established with fish and then add plants? l have gravel substrate and don't currently intend to have a co2 drops so I was going to go for relatively easy plants like Java fern. Water tests are currently yielding results of ammonia: 0.25 nitrite 0 nitrate 5 and pH 8.2 (which I am hoping to be able to bring down to at least 8). Any help would be appreciated!
