Soil with Tahitian Moon Rock cap?
So I'm planning my 29 planted and slowly piecing together the necessary equipment and I'm struggling with what substrate to use. In my planted 5 I'm using eco complete but almost all the plants in that tank take are pulling from the water column and I'm both dosing and using root tabs and no CO2 in that tank. My new tank will have CO2, plus the dosing and I'd like to carpet the floor (not sure which carpeting plants yet though) and in the past I had done soil with a fine gravel cap and had great success. I dont intend to move the plants around once the tank is established so I "think" that using soil with a black sand cap will do what I want but figured there would be some feedback here I could be missing. Also thinking about going with a dry start since I really want the carpet to be right as that's a look I love.
