    I'm so sorry I didn't even see I had this message until just now. You're welcome hope I was helpful.

    I don't have a lot of money, so for substrate I use Safe-T-Sorb from Tractor Supply. It's calcinated clay with high CEC .. $5 for 40 pound bag. LOL Enough to do my 75 gal tank. Lately been topping it with about .75-1" of pea gravel from Lowe's because I have big fish that stirs it up easily. With small fish it's not really a problem.

    Seems most of my plants now are Ludwigia repens which has taken over my tank along with my Myrio red. Also have Myrio mattogrossense, Water Sprite, Cabomba, a few unknown Anubias & a few others but those make up the bulk of my plants.

    I recently added some floaters (Water Lettuce & Salvinia. I don't really have a big variety & no carpeting type plants due to my setups.

    Hey, thank you so much for helping me in my thread where I was asking questions about the lamps and CFLs. Just wondering, what type of plants do you have, and what's your prefered substrate? thanks.
