New Substrate on 54 Gallon Corner tank
Hello everyone, I have been going through the threads and understand there are numerous posts regarding substrate... I have read several and other site regarding them, but would like to clarify something before pulling the trigger.
I am starting a new low tech 54 gallon corner tank. This will be my first planted tank and I'm not ready for CO2, but may add in the future.
I am considering Aqua Soil, Eco Complete, and Flourite for my substrate.
Originally I was going to go Eco Complete soley, but found that this would not provide nutrients for plants. I could still use this, and top with something else if necessary.
Would it be advisable to do so, or would it be better to go with aqua soil and flourite?
My preference is for a dark, preferably black, substrate that will provide for plans. Also, I'm not looking to break the bank.
So would layering be a good approach? I would like to use enough to sort of add a little hill coming from the back corner to give it a bit of a scaped look.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
