Question What do you guys think?

I am on the verge of starting my tank(10g) all i have left to do is to go get the substrate,fish,plants, and decor.

I can't make a decsion on substrate i know that all i want to do is put at least two plants in it that would help fry stay alive and not be eaten.

I was thinking about a bag of flourite but i don't know if that would be overkill and i could also go half and half with flourite with some smaller sized gravel. This is the last choice i have to make and i can't decide.

plz help

A bag of Flourite is perfect for a 10 gallon tank.

For 10 gallons the cost of whatever you chose won't be too bad. I suggest you decide what you think would look best to you, and pick that one. They all work for growing plants.
