Out with the crushed coral
For years I have used crushed coral for substrate as I liked the looks of it.
Now I want to used my tank more for plants it is becoming obvious from chatting on here crushed coral is not really suited for lush plant growth.
So I have decided it's time to change the substrate but for what?
I want something that is astheticly pleasing, plants are going to go crazy in but don,t want something that's going to cause a mess if I want to move things around such as capped soil.
I use ferts, diy co2 and I have fish in the tank as well as the plants so needs to be fish friendly.
I don't want to break the bank but what's my main options?
