Unorthodox Planted Tank- With Undergravel Filtration
Yes, I know, it's not the purist's version of a planted tank, but I'm setting up my old 55 gal. and although I was at first going to go with the total planted tank method, this is my main tank, in my den, and I want to make sure it looks good from the start. So I've decided to use one (or a few) of my smaller tanks to learn about planted tanks and go with what I know for my 55, at least for now, and that will include undergravel filtration. However, I do want to include live plants, so I'm looking for advice on incorporating live plants in a tank with UG filtration. Should I simply use small pots hidden under the gravel and root the plants in a common planted tank substrate within the pots? Any suggestions are appreciated.
