All you dirty people out there... ;)
I'm looking at a new substrate for my tank which currently has play sand. I'm on a budget (who isn't!) so though I'd love to be able to fill it with Eco Complete or the like, I just don't have £100 to spend. (Tank footprint dimensions are 15" by 38")I could do silica sand but I quite approve of the idea that plants like dirt so am thinking of trying a dirt tank capped with silica maybe? I don't know. What do you guys suggest?
I should suggest that my tank is actually quite tall so lighting is always going to be a challenge so the more nutritious my substrate the better I'm guessing.
