Hi all, I’m currently cycling my tank ( I think) and looking for ideas to stock my tank. Here is how it started I was in my basement and found my old 10 gallon tank with the filter ( the basement is heated) I took it out cleaned The tank out bought a new filter because the old one didn’t work. However I kept the old filter media not sure if it would be any good or not because it was all dryed up but figured I’d give it a try. Rinsed everything filled tank dechlorinated water. Put the old filter media in the water just floating around and poured in a bottle of tetra safe start. Anyways I’d like to add plants and driftwood in before the tank is cycled. Is that possible? If so what kind can I get? Also if you guys have any ideas of a combonation of fish and plants that would help out tremoundsly I would like some shrimp in there too if possible Also a little about the set up. It’s a 10 Gal My tap water runs about 8.0 I will be using 2 tetra PF10’s and a aqueon 100 W heater.
