Talking Help build a Kindergarten tank

I volunteered to set up a planted aquarium for my daughter's Kindergarten classroom. I think it will be good for them to have a little ecosystem in their room, as well as learn about proper fish care, as opposed to the ideas of disposable dyed fish and such. I'm still only in the planning stages but so far I'm donating a 10 gal, an HOB filter, driftwoods, shrimp and some of my big java ferns. And another member of this forum already donated some subwassertang and other plants (TY!).

But what I really need to get this project off the ground is substrate. Anyone out there have some plant friendly substrate that they are willing to give away? Left over MTS supplies? MGOCPS? Little sandwich baggies of flourite or eco-complete that you are tripping over?

You will have the extreme gratitude of 22 funny 5-yr-olds.


UPDATE: so...I upgraded their tank to a 20gal. LoL
