Porous volcanic below Flourite?
I'm preparing to set up my first planted tank for an aquascape and trying to choose the best substrate setup. I need someone to give me a reality check on what my idea is!
I'm thinking about laying a bed of porous volcanic pebbles down first and then build up the flourite over it for the plants to bed in. My thinking is that the porous pebbles will provide room for some air and plenty of surface for bacteria under the topsoil. Does that sound like a solid idea, or....? If not, or there are better layering options, please share your thoughts.
