2" deep Aquasoil... will it lead to anaerobic?
I have a 20L with 2" of Aquasoil 1 and I was wondering if it is to deep? I have read that finner substrate if to deep can lead to anaerobic spots due to it compacting. But I'm hoping this is not the case with aquasoil since it seems to be much lighter.
I'm sure if I smoosh it up, I can compact it but I'm not one to rescape to often and if I do I'll be extra careful not to smash it up. I'm just a bit worried cause I have read that any substrate deeper the 1" will start to build up gases if not siphoned regularly. I don't think I want to be digging in the aquasoil and shorten the integrity of the soil.
