The time has come for me to set up my spare 3gal long like this.

Now debating substrates. Here's what I've got on hand:
  • Safe-T-Sorb
  • Pool Filter Sand
  • Azoo Plant Grower Bed
  • Akadama (too large for a tiny tank)
  • UP Aqua Shrimp Sand (the micro kind)
  • Fluval Shrimp Stratum

Or should I order one of the varieties of Aquasoil in powder form? Africana and Malaya are quite attractive.

I'm leaning toward UP Aqua with driftwood, fissidens and a bit of other moss. Plan is to keep some F1 Mischling to breed with other Crystals and Bees.
