Personally, I think it still matters b/c you see the substrate below the plants if your substrate is deep. But I think the color of play sand is awesome in planted tanks. If you look at photos of...

Can BBA limit plant growth?

This may very well be considered a stupid question, but everyone who's been on the forum for a while expects that from me ;) so I'll go ahead and ask it. It seems like the plants in my tank that...

Diggers keep uprooting my microsword!!!

It just won't take root. I think I'm going to give up on it. What about HC - will I have the same problem? I love the way it looks. If I do get some, would I be better off buying a mat and planting...

On a side note, my clown loaches love green water! They must feel relaxed b/c it's murky. They do a lot more lazy side sleeping in the foreground.

Me too - regular green sewing thread. I don't know yet if the anubias will attach fully b/f the thread rots. I'll have to wait and see. I think it will last long enough for the moss for sure.
