Frustrations with aquabase
It worked ok in my 29 gal, although it was dusty as all get out even after being washed TONS.
However in my 59 gal its becoming a NIGHTMARE. The dust is horrid. It seems to be actualy causing algea to grow within the substrate its self and no matter how much I try to carefully suction up the piles of dusty residue... my plants look like they have a case of severe dandruf!
Id like to replace it all with something better.
Recomendations? Please... no sand, that already ruined my filters and caused my tank to crash severely.
Also, for the cost of a better substate how many bags will I need and how much will it cost roughly? Id like something that does what it says it does!
