This will be my first planted tank and I have been doing a lot of reading. I'm picking up 3 to 5 used 55 Gallon tanks tomorrow (starting with just 1 fill.
Considering the cost of the tanks, heaters, plants, fish, filteration, I am trying to keep the substrate low cost and I do really like to the look of sand.
I want to develop a full eco-system going with a full planted tank and a wide variety of fish.....
But, back to the question.
Called home depot after reading up on here. They have two sand options, Silica Sand and Play sand. The Silica Sand is less expensive, but I haven't read much on it.
What I was considering was Silica Sand augmented wiht Seachem Flourish tabs.
Any opinions/advice would be nice.
