Should I add something to my gravel?
I'm starting up a 105 gallon discus tank and have decided to buy Caribsea 'Peace River' substrate. This is my first time using a completely inert substrate (I've previously used Eco-complete, which doesn't have much in the way of nutrients but initially had something) and I was wondering if I should mix something into it or layer something underneath it.
Also...I have some leftover Aquasoil Amazonia from another tank which I thought of using just in the center of the tank (where my driftwood centerpiece and plants will be) but won't have time to cycle it because my fish will be in a Rubbermaid container while I switch over their current tank to the larger one. If I were to add that, it would only be about 4 liters...is that likely to produce the same degree of cycle that only using Aquasoil would? I'm going to be using the same filter for the new tank and seeded filter media in the new filter so, I'm hoping to add Bio-Spira and get the fish into their new tank as quickly as possible.
Sorry for the long post, I hope what I'm asking makes some sense.
