Substrate

What is the best substrate to cap my dirted tank? I am thinking black diamond sand.

A heavily planted shrimp tank is possible!

I would have to saw Pool Filter Sand is by far my favorite cap. Black Diamond Blasting Grit should work out as well. Don't know from experience, but I'm setting up a tank with Black Diamond Blasting Grit and I've only heard great things about it. Just make sure to rinse it out before putting it in the tank

Who would have thought that plants like dirt?!
