I have a question! I have Discus and I want to
use sand for the Discus and ADA soil for the
nutrients and ph lowering. I have ph of 7.6. I use
peat and Co2. I have mostly low light plants, but
want to add some HC.
I want to keep the ada soil from mixing with the sand
on the surface when I siphon or pull plants. I was thinking
of putting a layer 1.5" of ada soil, and then putting a screen
on top of the soil, and then layering sand on top of that.
I would cut holes in the screen and plant roots. This would
be sort of a permanent scape. If I wanted to re-plant, I would
try to clear area and cut a hole in the screen to plant roots.
Any problems with this approach? Thanks!
