Safe T Sorb and Aquasoil Combo?
I'm setting up 2 nano tanks and redoing my 10 gallon. I bought a 9l bag of aquasoil in hopes of stretching it out for all 3 tanks. I'm not really interested in going 3' deep for the substrate. The 2 nanos are ordinary rectangular tanks (like mini 10's), so the foot print isn't like the cubes that everyone else uses.
Sooooo....in reading a lot about Safe T Sorb, I was thinking about using a small layer underneath the aquasoil to not only take up space, but I was thinking I'd also get some other benefits from it as well. It is made of that montmorollonite clay, which is something I use in my other shrimp tank. What do you guys think? I know some will say don't use it because everything will get mixed up and it won't look right, but I was thinking of just using it in the back half of the tank, underneath where the slope would be.
Let me know what you think, or if you can add any ideas, or if you just want to call me an idiot because my idea is stupid (but then I'll cry). I know at the ADA store they do recommend using something under the aquasoil for the collection of BB (forgot what they were selling).
