Which Substrate to Add?
Hello all -
I have a mixture of laterite, gravel, natural river clay, and some other type of gravel in my 110 and need to add some more substrate of some kind.
Originally, my driftwood was held down by a HUGE chunk of slate which i have just removed. Now I have a pretty big depression in the substrate and it needs to be filled. I also wouldn't mind adding more substrate to raise the level in the back.
Complications: The fish and plants will have to stay in there while I add new substrate so it can't have a negative effect on the water conditions. I don't mind cloudiness but ill probably had to just add it in with a cup and let it fall. I also want it to fit in, so nothing black, white etc. Just natural colors.
I figure it will probably have to be something already in there, ie more laterite, more clay, or some sort of flourite or florabase? What is everyone's favorite? Keep in mind that this is a moderate light/CO2 injected tank with lots of sensitive cories who don't appreciate hard gravel.
110 Tall in progress!
