Most use moss or marbles for egg layers. What are hoping to breed?

I have sachem fluorite black substrate in my planted tank and it's great when you fist dump the water in it's all cloudy and a mess but give it a couple off weeks and looks great. Carpeting plants such as dwarf hair grass love it

No rumors here. Anubias should not be planted in ANY substrate. It should be attached to driftwood, rocks, etc.

I would us cotton because it will dissolve. And by time it dissolves the roots will be established

WOW has it been a while since i have been on here...
Oh well...
So i am thInking about cutting down from 3 tanks just to 2 tanks because i am giving my bass to my friend who will hopefully live a long life in a bigger tank. So i was just wondering what are some of tye best substrate that works for you...
I was just planning on turning my 20 gallon into a WAY more techy kinda tank, with better light providing more Watts. So i was also going to re-plant everything and put in different substrate.
Right now i have just normal gravel, sand, a mix of them both, small pebbles, and also some bigger pebbles. So i was just wondering what would be tye best choice out of those, because i really dont feel like going out and getting new substrate.

Any help is appreciated
And excuse ke for any typos or grammatical mistakes i may have made, i am typing with my iPod
Thanks again...

Happy plantkeeping!
