how important is CEC cap substrate?
I was looking at a dirted MGOPME with a bit of turface mixed in with either Eco Complete (high CEC) or black diamond blasting sand (no CEC) for a cap. The tank will be planted and stocked with fish/inverts and (eventually) be high light and Co2 equipped.
Irregardless of appearance, which one, and why?
