Yes, yet another 'which substrate do I use' thread from a planted newbie.
I've narrowed my choices for substrate for the 75 gallon I'm setting up to either Flourite black, or Flourite black sand. (That is, until I change my mind yet again...
). Since I would need to order either on-line, I'd like to get as much info as I can on both of them. So, if anyone has any opinions on the following aspects of the two, I'd like to hear them:
B) Ease of setup - how much rinsing, do I need laterite, peat, or anything else under it, etc
C) Ease of maintenance - once set up, how easy is it to rescape without clouding the water, pull up plants, it's ability to hold plants in place, etc
D) Plant health - is either one 'better' for the plants health?
Any opinions on those, or any other aspects, would be greatly appreciated!
