My first low tech. I have a question.
I have been thinking of doing a mostly planted tank for some time now and since my 55 is healthy and doing well maybe now it is time. I have been researching low-tech tanks and since I had Diana Waltads book 'The Ecology of the Planted Aquarium" I delved even deeper into the subject. My aunt is moving so she is giving me her 55 with stand, lights, etc. so I am thinking that things are kind of coming together for a new build.
I do have a question though. Imagine that. I know alot of people use the Miracle Gro potting soil capped with gravel but I happen to already have 3 bags of Eco Complete substrate and I am wondering if this could be used in place of the Miracle Gro. I hate for the stuff to not get used. Thanks.
