suggestion for choosing substrate
Hi, I need some suggestion for choosing a right substrate for my new planted tank [5 feet, 212.37 litres/56.1 gallon(US)]. I know there is no such best substrate as particular but i have got confused reading all the stuff.
I want to have a HC (cuba) carpet or monte carlo. My location is near coastal area(India), Temp 24-32 degrees. I am ready to get a Co2 kit and required lighting. I have some naturally available resources like garden soil, sand and gravels (Gravels from a river side of size about 2-4 mm).
So please guide me.
