Max height of subtrate
I have 3 feet deep tank (36 inches / ~90 cm) ..
This height is making it very hard to reach to bottom for any planting / cleaning etc. And this height is hard for light to penetrate as well. .
I want to make it 1 feet short. .
One option I have is to cut one feet from above..
But the other possibility I was thinking of is to make subtrate / gravel one feet high (12 inch / 30 cm). .
More height of subtrate could be good for roots I believe. .
So do you think it is totally bad idea to have subtrate / gravel 1 feet tall ?
I know it could be unusual but I am thinking of options to effectively reduce height of my tank. .
Please suggest. .
