GMYukonon24s Like the others said dark background I would say black that way it makes everything stand out.

andrewss nice start... and I agree with what someone else said, use a dark background - I think it will be important with the substrate you are using

camiller27 What do you recommend using

Monster Fish Flourite substrate is just a high CEC material. There's no ferts whatsoever in it.
