I've got a 33gal aquarium.
I'm planning to have cichlids and some plants in it. I'd like to call it a planted tank, but with my experience of cichlids...they like to eat most plans.
There are a few which they'll probably leave alone...plants which are quite hardy and don't need such a specific substrate...i'm assuming?
Anyways...i've got a bag of florabase and quite a bit of gravel. Now...the directions on the back of the florabase says not to mix with gravel...but would it be sooooo bad to put in the florabase, and then gravel on top?
it'll be just a small layer of florabase...not much. I figure i'll put it in just for a little nutrients.
