Substrate 101 questions....
Hey guys, I am about to add substrate to my tank but I'm not sure if I'm going about this the right way.
I have a 16G half-moon tank and I bought a 20lb bag of Eco-Complete from the LFS (the owner recommended it and I bought it on a whim).
Is there a rule of thumb as far as substrate goes in lbs per gallon? Also, Eco-Complete bag claims that its nutrient rich. I won't have any stem plants (mainly mosses), in which case should I simply use Eco-Complete or some inert substrate and top it off with Eco-Complete?
I appreciate any help, thanks!
