6 gal nano newbie question
ok guys, so this is my first post on plantedtank.net...
i recently purchased a eclipse system 6. i'm on a budget so i plan on leaving the original light in there, but i want to do some low light, hardy plants. is it neccesary to go and buy a flourite substrate? the problem is is that i can only find it in a 20 lb bag for $24.95 and i dont need nearly that much (or afford it!). would using plain gravel with water fertilizer be sufficient if i am only going to use low light, hardy plants?
thanks alot for the help guys!
