Substrate suggestions

Hi all.

I've recently decided to purchase a 600 litre tank and I'd like to go heavily planted. I've not yet decided about the kind of plants that'll be in there but the tank will be tropical and not necessarily a biotope.

I've read a few articles and have become confused by the abundance of information available and the various methods of achieving a beautiful looking planted aquarium.

I thought an inch and a half of soil with the same amount of sand would be enough but after having read everything it has become apparent that there's more to it.

Can anyone offer the pros and cons of the various methods out there to help a budding newbie out? I'd appreciate any help.

Many thanks for your time.
