Equivalent product of Tropica Plant Growth Substrate in the USA?
Iím setting up a planted nano this coming week, the first tank Iíve had the chance to set up since I moved from the UK to the USA. I thought I had brought half a bag of Tropica Plant Growth Substrate with me when I moved, but I couldnít find it today in my boxes of aquarium stuff and realised I threw it out in case there was an issue shipping stuff like that in our shipping container, wasnít sure if there were customs issues with organic material etc.
I therefore have the dilemma that I have ordered plants arriving early this week and now I donít have the substrate. I went online, only place I see it listed is Big Alís and its out of stock. Itís a small tank and I really donít have space in the layout to have a sand front and soil section for planting, it just doesnít work with the scape I have planned.
Iím wondering if there is a substrate more commonly available in the US that performs the same function as the Tropica Plant Growth Substrate? Iím look8mg for that base layer of nutrients that I can layer below inert sand so my Crypts can root feed.
Thanks in anticipation, hope you can help me!
