Switching to a planted tank I have a few questions..
Ok I have a 58 gallon tank that currently has a few fish in it mainly platys which i am not keeping as soon as I can trade or sell them to some one and gravel substrate... I am wanting to start a planted tank and eventually add fish back in. My first question is about adding a plant substrate to my existing substrate and how much to use.. My gravel bed is currently about one and a half inches thick. Would it be safe to add the plant substrate with out tearing down the tank. I was looking at using Carb Sea Eco complete or Seachem Fluorite. Also how many ponds of this would I have to use.
Thank you in advance for any and all information you can share.
