okay.... so, been reading alot on the substrate topic. The goal is to have swords and crypts do well in a long lasting substrate without having to add root tabs. A basic aquarium(glass) averages 10 years to be safe so im looking for a substrate that can last that long. I do alot of replanting so items like SMS (which i have seen comically reffered to as "light as Pleco poop") may not be for me. Cost is always a consideration but since i am doing this once i can justify alittle more in the budget. I will of course add ferts in the water colum but want something for the ever hungry roots of some plants. After the summer i will be starting the 90 gallon planted discus journal. Im slowly aquiring goods as i go so we will all be able to see your collective advice in action!
