Insight On Substrates Capped by Sand
Iím not necessarily sure how Iíd like to proceed here. I know I want brown sand as a substrate and found a great option at my LFS. It makes a lot of sense to either dirt or add fluorite or some sort of nutrient filled substrate as a base and then cap with sand.
My main concern is rescaping/moving plants and the mess it can make, as well as the mixing of the sand and other substrate. Iíve searched a ton of threads and some people say itís no issue and some say itís an eventual nightmare.
Can anyone chime in to give some insight on the above? Iím also thinking of using the DSM method if that matters.
I know root tabs are an option, but for a moderately to heavy planted tank I can see this being a pain and/or costly. Thanks in advance for any help!
