Yeah I put about 1/3" power sand and then 1 3/4" aqua soil and then however much powder on top. There is no exact measurement for this, its mostly personal preference. What kind of plants are you going to have?
Well, to initally get the tank up and running it will be primarily Stems, with eventually incorporating 2 pieces of large driftwood with moss and ferns around that....then most likely going for a dutch setup with some stems, crypts, some other fore/midground plants (havent entirely decided yet)....maybe som HC or gloss or some other carpeting plant. We have a local store getting a massive shipment of Tropica plants, so I am going through their website atm.....if you have any suggestions, I surely welcome them!
