Replace or not replace?
I have a couple of low tech tanks (10 gallon at work and 3 gallons at my father's house) which have gravel as a substrate. The plants are low light, simple plants (java fern, Cabomba, crypts, moss, and water sprite). I've been toying with the idea of switching out hte substrate because the LFS is having a Boxing week sale and there is a good deal on Florabase, Eco-compete and Fluorite.
Do you think it's worth the hassle, since I don't have any heavy root feeders? And if it's worth it, should I replace teh whole substrate, or just add some Fluorite?
