Rams and substrate

I am planning on having a planted tank that is going to be centered around my rams. I was wondering what the best substrate would be that would be small enough(~ pool filter sand grain size) for the rams to interact but will also be a good medium for plants to grow in. Thanks!

I read that most people with planted cichlid tanks find that pool filter sand works best for them. I have a ram in a 10 gallon and am using Schultz Aquatic Soil. The plants are doing well and he does not seem to mind the substrate.

I had rams in my discus tank in the past, using eco-complete substrate, and the fish never seemed to mind. The only time they really ever seemed to do anything with the substrate, was during breeding behavior...they would shimmy there bodies all over the substrate trying to dig lil wholes for their eggs....it was fun to watch

EC is great for plants

Good luck
