Low Tech = Affordable Substrate
I'm trying to set up a 30 gal tank on a tight budget. So far have gotten great equipment deals used but now I'm wondering about substrate. I do want the most lush growth I can get out of low light plants!
How much do I need for this tank? Like how many pounds?
What's a good, inexpensive substrate? It looks like some of you mix the expensive stuff like ecocomplete/flourite with regular gravel or sand. I don't think I want to use actual dirt or potting soil, if that's possible.
Please post your suggestions!
[Also any suggestions on wood/stump deals would be appreciated]
