Which subtrate for 100 g planned tank


I am redoing my 100 g tank:

Below dimensions:

L × W × Depth

Feet : 4 × 2 × 1.75

Inches : 48 × 24 × 21

Cm : 120 x 60 x 54

Ltr : ~388

Us galon : 100

Can you please suggest a good not very expensive subtrate?

And how much thickness should be of subtrate ( subtrate height )

Also I want to have good carpet. . What should I put in as good carpet. .

I have pressurised CO2.. and 4 x 54w GE StarCoat T5HO of 6500k

Looking forward to your suggestions please..

Dirt and sand are cheap. One inch of dirt and 1-2 inches of sand should do.
