Advice from the experienced would be much appreciated
Although I'm not exactly a noob, I haven't set up that many planted tanks, and am contemplating a new 40 breeder. I have ordered a bunch of hydrophyte's new "Ion Brick" gravel, but I have a bucketful of used Amazonia, a bunch of laterite, and I could always procure some peat moss or Miracle gro organic potting soil. My goal is to establish a substrate that will be long-lasting, beneficial for root-feeders, and won't create an ugly mess if I uproot and replant any stems I might want to use. My thinking is to use the Amazonia and laterite for a thin bottom layer with about 3" of the Ion brick on top. If anyone has done anything similar to this, I would be grateful if you would share your experiences (good and bad) so that I might avoid any potential pitfalls, thanks.
