    Would i be able to set up my substrate and hardscape and leave it for sometime before planting or would that cause some problems?:ehhh:

    Actually that what I normally do although some say you can keep ADA soil dry because it will easily crumble. I normally take a week or 2 before I'm ok with the hardscape. I need to make sure that hardscape is right before start planting because once planted it is difficult to change the hardscape.

    I think as long as you are happy with the finished hardscape of the layout, you can plant right then and fill up the aquarium.
