Mixing Substrate vs. All Flourite
I'm currently trying to decide what I should do regarding substrate for my 40 breeder. I currently have two bags of Flourite Black, and I'm trying to decide whether to mix that with plain (read: cheap) black gravel of similar size, or to spend what seems like a lot to buy 3-4 more bags, at over $20 each, of flourite black.
Can anyone give me some info on how much of an actual difference a full bed of Flourite would make vs 2 bags Flourite mixed with gravel? If it matters, the specs are 40 breeder, 120w t-12 lighting, will be densely planted when ready.
EDIT: Forgot to mention will be fully dosing ferts, both macros and micros.
