Seachem Flourite + ????

My 40 Gal is 100% fluorite, and a year after I've planted, I find some driftwood. It was on a slate, and I've now worked it into the bedding. Ideally I would have had the driftwood on the bottom glass and THEN added the fluorite overtop.

I realize I might need to add some fluorite to make it deep enough for roots around the driftwood, but maybe I should consider something else overtop of the fluorite? Any suggestions?

Attached is a before photo with the driftwood before I worked it into the gravel bed.

I would just get rid of the driftwood altogether...it seems to block of lot of the area and it's really hard to see much around it...just my 2 cents...

There's not much around the drifwood just yet. The plants that are there are not 100%, and I know I need to add CO2 to make the plants really pop.

It really depends on your species really...by the look of your plant selection, I think you could go low tech without CO2.
