I made the mistake of adding my fish to my tank before i researched about the cycling process so now I am dealing with that. I was thinking about eventually adding some live plants to my tank and my question was whether that should wait until after the tank is fully cycled or if it will assist the cycling process. My tank has been setup up for nearly two weeks and I have been doing daily water changes and tests. My ammonia level is high (7) and i had read that plants will help reduce the ammonia levels.

Thanks
