substrate question - confused!
I thought I had done enough reading as a newbie so that I wouldn't make any grave mistakes but I just realized the substrate I ordered, "CaribSea Tahitian Moon Substrate" is not a great substrate for fresh water, aquatic plants. Can I use it on top of another substrate and if so, is there one someone can recommend? Is the issue that it is too finely granulated to secure roots properly?
My interest is only in creating an aquascape; I will not be housing any fish other than maybe a ghost shrimp or two.
