Hi everyone! Newbie here has a question :p
I am starting a 300L community tank with angels and boesemans atm.
I want to have a reasonable number of plants. Some amazon swords, some straight valiserri, java fern, some java moss. And maybe some other plants.
I am using a brand new juwel rio 300 with t5 lighting.
My question is, I want to have a sand substrate and also want to have plants. I have heard about using a soil substrate below the sand for plant roots. I have been searching high and low for aquatic soil and cant find anything anywhere (I am in scotland). I was wondering if it would be ok to sprinkle some normal garden soil bought at a garden centre under the sand for the roots?
I will also b using fert tabs in the sand in addition to the soil.
