Welcome! It sounds like you’re off to a good start. Diane’s book is great but don’t let it overwhelm you. It’s not meant to be overwhelming. My way of using the books is to read it through end to end, then I “read it backwards” 😂 Let me explain:
The way I see it you need to read the book to understand it, but what I mean by “reading it backwards” is after you read the book, go to the section about setting up a planted tank. THEN you read the former chapters if any problems arise. Does that make sense? It’s not about doing everything all at once, it’s about setting up the tank properly with understanding and using the information in the book to problem solve as they arise. Eventually the tank will be stable and you have no problems! You can happily feed your fish and prune your plants.

Good luck!
