No substrate planted tank
I haven't had any serious planted tanks for years due to traveling and moves... my patience just ran out and I'm itching to grow again. One 5 gallon and 3 common species just won't do it any more. But, I will very likely be moving again before too long, and I don't want to tear down full substrate tanks so soon.
I'm thinking of filling the tanks with only a thin gravel bottom, and keeping plants potted, with the pots disguised by wood, moss/riccia etc., and rocks. Seems to me this might be a good way to keep things more mobile, and still look better than bare tanks full of plastic and clay pots.
Has anyone tried something like this?
