I put a 2" layer of Kitty Litter down, fill tank partway with water, mix in 1" of sand (to keep Kitty Litter from compacting) and then top with 1"-2" your choice of aesthetic substrate (regular gravel, sand, Flourite, etc.)
The roots in the tank with this recipe are easily ten times as impressive as the roots in my tank with pure Fluorite substrate.
