I'm an unemployed full time student, and I was wondering about substrates. I'm sick of aquarium gravel, I'd like richer, earthier tones than the "natural looking" gravel.
I was told to look into Amazonian Aquasoil, don't think I can afford it.
I was told to look into Schultz Aquasoil, can't find it.
Told to look into Soilmaster Pro, same thing.
Then I was told to look into Turface, which is fired clay and looks kinda sandy brown... not dark enough.
So what is an affordable, dark soil/substrate I can fill in my 29 with that will also benefit the plants?
