Just curious what you use for the plants to get proper nutrients...

Thanks!

I have 3 planted tanks with inert substrates. I use dry fertilizers to get proper nutrients.

I have Tahitian Moon Sand in my tank, and I just stick a couple of flourish tabs under the root feeders. Works really well

Peat, flourite, zeolite, lavalite, creek sand. This is my ultimate tank bed.
