Substrate for my first planted tank
I am relatively new to planted tanks. I did have one 15G tank several years ago but was never serious about it.
I am starting a 46G bowfront tank and am overwhelmed by the choices of substrate. This tank will be heavily planted and have a CO2 system. Lighting is a Marineland Aquatic Plant LED. Once planted, I will add german blue rams and maybe a few angel fish.
What would be a good combination of substrates to start with for a newbie? Everyone has their opinion and am happy to read them all. thanks for any help.
