My tank base is 36'' by 12'', and I only bought 2 bags of flourite (9 kgs I think) so yeah. Only about one inch. I really didn't think this would be a problem, but then again this is my first actual planted tank. I won't have ANY money till christmas as I blew all of it out on the tank and such. :P I won't be using anchors as the ones I saw previously are LEAD, and I am thinking of stocking discus... So no way of that happening lol. I will try to get more substrate. But I have one more question. I put in the substrate, filled the tank AND THEN planted. Is that the right order? I can drain the tank easily so if that will help, please tell me. Thanks
