Tell me about root tabs!
I just got a 40 breeder and I'm trying to figure out what I want to do about substrate. I think I want sand for my substrate. I've tried the soil capped with sand method, but it was a gigantic mess and I don't want to deal with it. I had been averse to the idea of root tabs, but now I'm thinking about giving them a shot. I don't know much about them though. Do I just add a little sand, but the root tabs down, add more sand, and then don't worry about them for awhile?
I haven't made many decisions yet on what I want for the tank. I want carpet plants and I want the option for other rooted plants. I need to have a loot at my light fixture, but I think it has 2 T5 HO bulbs that need to be replaced.
A lot of my problems come from that I don't know what I want to do. I'm on a budget, so I'd like to save money where I can. I'm excited, but I'm a little overwhelmed.
