Best Substrate for contstant replanting?
I'm rebuilding my 10 Guppy breeder tank this weekend. Since this tank is in my bedroom the plan is to move all the guppies to my 75 Gallon and rebuild this tank and make the plants the focal point of the tank with a few fish.
This will be used to get my feet wet with planted tanks so I'm starting with Water Sprite, Water Wisteria in the background and would like to do a carpet in the foreground. I wanna stay away from dirt since I plan to replant the trimmings for the W.S and W.W. and don't want the mess.
What substrate would you recommend for constant replanting that won't make too much of a mess?
What would be a Fast Growing carpeting plant? Not really too worried about what looks the best. Just want somehting that will spread fast and easily.
Tank set up:
Substrate: To be determined
Lighting: 2x 10 Watt 6,500K Colormax CFL
Suppliments: Flourish, Flourish Excel
Filtration: Aqueon 10G ( Will be upgrading after rebuild )
