KittenFishMom Posted November 26, 2022 Share Posted November 26, 2022 I have substrate and some water in my new build in my 55 gallon tank. I have filled it about 1/4 full and am putting in same plants before the water gets very deep. (I have been taking photos and will start a journal shortly.) The RO system won't arrive until Tuesday, so I am using a mix of well water and spring water. One gallon at a time. I did put down a plastic bag, so the substrate wasn't disturbed. I'm wondering how much I should plant before it is full? Should I fill it enough to cover the plants and then wait for the RO water? Should I add turbo start 700 before the filters are in place? I have fishless fuel, but hope to move some fish in soon. The 2 adult corys are rather cramped in their tall 10 gallon hex. Should I add prime? Should I be circulating the water with sponge filters and air stone as I fill it? I'm just not sure how to proceed from here. The end with the tall vase. I filled it with water after I took the cover off. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
