    Hi i just start my 10 gallon aquarium by way of the dry start method, i was wondering if i was doing everything ok. I used eco-complete substrate, and in that i planted micro sword and dwraf hairgrass in the corners. i seperated the clumps and used dividers under the substrate so the two plants would not mix. i added aome water so the gravel would be fairly wet. also i have the tank covered with suran wrap and lighted by 25 watts for 12 hours on. So what else should i be doing. should i add any flourish or mist the plants a few times a week. thanks
