Okay, the flourite is awsome and yada yada yada, but the problem is that some of the more lighter boyant plants just end up floating. I'm thinking of mixing in some tahitian moon sand as the darkening of my substrate could only be a good thing. I don't mind if it mixes as I'm not looking for a solid black substrate. Will this help my crypt parva that seems to love the surface? My crypt wentii isn't having a problem as it sends deep roots down quickly, and the java fern is on maylasian wood so that doesn't matter, but I'm worried the dwarf sag. will behave as the parva does. I'm going to try a new tactic with the parva that involves tying it together but I'm really hoping for a long term solution as I'm going to upgrading my light and adding some forground plants soon.
