I came home today with a new 48"x12" 55 gallon tank. I have good experience with fresh and saltwater fish along with reef tanks. This 55 will be my very first planted tank and I can use all the help I can get. I'm told ADA Aqua Soil Amazonia would be a great choice for substrate. Expensive but good. What's everyone's thought on that substrate vs everything else available? How much should I get for the 55? It's sold in 3 and 9 liter bags.

Also, sorry for the title. I didn't mean to scare anyone. The website was working funny and I was just trying to make a post. The site was unresponsive.

Bump: Oh yea, can anyone recommend a good book on planted tanks that I might be able to find on Amazon?

welcome to the site... that seems to be the best out there. there are different substrates that works just as good as the aquasoil. it's good for the most part, until it runs outta nutrients...
