Opinions for substrate boarders/retainers
I'm getting ready to dust the cobwebs off some of my larger tanks and started brain storming for my scape. I'd like to do a large hill in the back and have part of the front a sandy area. To divide the sand and my other substrate I was thinking about these options.
First, using a flexible plastic. I would coat this plastic in an aquarium safe silicon and then pour sand over it, kind of like making those glitter and glue drawings in preschool. This would give good separation and not stick out. Has anyone tried this? Pictures?
Second I was thinking about using the rock wool that plants grow in. Would carpeting plants be able to grow and live in the rock wool?
Opinions are welcomed and appreciated! Thanks :-)
