safeTsorb + Pool filter sand?
I have PFS in my main tank and despite my learning and adjusting, plants do pretty well but some tend to get really thick roots high up in the water column. To me, they don't look the greatest and trimming them is a pain as when I trim before water changes each week, a lot of roots may have formed.
Would providing/adding a better substrate decrease this at all? I have contemplating adding some safeTsorb so that it can help feed the roots from absorbed nutrients (EI dosing).
I did recently make some root tabs and add them. I do also think that at least some mulm is making it's way down into the sand and plants I have removed generally have really prolific root systems.
Would there be any potential issues from doing this? My sand isn't super deep, I used one 40# bag in my 40b and I have one bag of safeTsorb I picked up a few weeks ago. I don't know if that would end up being to much substrate or not... I could try to vacuum out some of the sand but I don't really want to uproot the whole tank.
Not too concerned if it will look odd as I don't have any real "open" areas of just substrate.
