ADA Aquasoil - Amazonia or Malaya?
OK, i have a 10 gallon Betta tank that has white sand substrate, CO2, a 20" Finnex Planted +, Dwarf hair grass, and 1 anubias. My Dwarf hairgrass is alive, kinda spreading, but sort of a pale green. (I have DHG in a 55 that is dark green and going nuts in Ecocomplete!) I have been reading that substrate is everything and i really want to try ADA Aquasoil to see if it really is as good as the hype. I have another 55 that is plain old sand substrate and is a possibility for a future re-scape, but I want to experiment on a small tank first.
So, my questions:
1. Should i get the Amazonia or the Malaya? Does it really matter?
2. ADA recommends powersand. Does anyone have experience with this?
3. Is the powersand special worth the extra money over the regular powersand?
thanks in advance
