I have a 29 gal. tank that I just put live plants in. However when I first started the tank I just used pea sized gravel with no substait cause I had fake plants.
Here is my question, Is there a way to add a substait to my astablished tank?
I was thinking of drainning the tank into 2 18 gallon rubbermade containers and putting the fish in them also and moveing all my gravel to one side laying the substrait cover it with the gravel and do the same on other side. Then filling the tank back up with the old water.
Is there a better way before I doo all this.
Also I read a post that said you could use cat litter instead of laerite. Is this true?

Thanks,
Jason

P.S. please excuse my spelling.:hehe:
